1896. PCGS graded Proof 67 Cameo PQ CAC Approved. Only 762 minted. A white gem cameo. This lovely Superb Gem is blazing with full, pearly white luster, cameo on the devices, mirror-deep throughout the fields, but we are hard pressed to find even a single carbon fleck or noticeable hairline. The 1896 issue is famous for its stark cameo contrast, more so than on most others in the series. In this way, from first to last, the luster glows. Furthermore, from center to periphery, the strike as keen as any seen.

Whenever the reader comes across the term "Premium Quality" or the CAC identifier it means that the grading service may have been unduly austere in our judgment or that of others. Perhaps the luster is a bit stronger than usual, or perhaps, as well, the cheek is cleaner and fresher than average. Note that we use the Premium Quality modifier sparingly, and only where fully warranted. Pop 5; none finer (PCGS # 85682) .
Estimated Value $5,000 - 5,500.
The Larry Shapiro Collection; Number One PCGS Registry Proof Barber Quarters Set.

Realized $6,038
