Lot Description
1899 25C PR68 Cameo NGC. This turn-of-the-century Barber quarter, from a mintage of 846 proof pieces, is unavailable any finer with Cameo surfaces, according to the combined certified populations, although there is one miraculous PR69 Ultra Cameo at NGC. This piece is one of four at the PR68 Cameo level at NGC, and there is one more at PCGS (8/12). This example is strongly contrasted with gorgeous silver-black mirrors and sharply struck devices coated in white mint frost. Each side offers amazing eye appeal and careful preservation. Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 5/2009), lot 661; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2011), lot 5527. From The Greensboro Collection, Part I.
