Lot Description
1899 25C PR68 Cameo NGC. Fully brilliant silver-white surfaces on each side are among this coin's most obvious attributes, creating a splendid contrast that appears to verge on an Ultra Cameo designation. There is little perceptible color otherwise, beyond the vaguest suggestion of gold. Even a loupe fails to reveal any mentionable distractions, although we note a few swirling lines on the jawbone area that may be minor slide marks. The strike is full throughout both sides. Among the finest survivors of the proof mintage of 846 pieces, this PR68 Cameo 1899 quarter is one of four so graded at NGC. A single PR69 Ultra Cameo is finer (3/11). From The Slotkin Family Trust Collection.
