Lot Description
1909 25C PR66 Cameo NGC. Only 650 proof Barber quarters were struck in 1909, slightly more than the previous two years, but a far cry from the mintages of the 1890s. The unpopular matte proof finish on the gold proofs seems to have lowered the public's regard for proof coins in general. Premium Gem Cameo proofs are elusive today. The present coin features sharply detailed frosty devices and brightly reflective brilliant fields. Census: 8 in 66 Cameo, 11 finer (2/11).
