Lot Description
1900 25C PR68 Cameo NGC. CAC. The turn of the new century (except to the purists) appears to have been especially popular with collectors, as the proof mintages of minor silver coins took a small but noticeable pop, nearly to the 1,000-piece level. Accordingly, some wonderful coins such as the present coin exist, perhaps also due to scrupulous production on the part of Mint personnel. The centers are silvery on this piece, with a peripheral ring of iridescent almond and steel-blue patina marking the originality and enormous appeal of this special numismatic treasure. Census: 3 in 68 Cameo, 1 in PR68+ S, 0 finer (3/11). From The Slotkin Family Trust Collection.
