1902. PCGS graded Proof 66+ PQ CAC Approved. Only 777 minted. A satiny gem with energetic fresh luster and sleek mirrors that seems to want to motivate bidders to increase their bids as though by subtle hypnotism! Well struck, since incompleteness is limited to the base of the fletchings. The fields are close to pristine, and the portrait is also undisturbed by contact. This magnificent type coin is also of interest to the specialist, since as of April 2012 only 5 pieces have been certified higher as Proof 67 with no other Proof 66s assigned by PCGS. Among Barber quarter issues, this has a moderate mintage, although 777 pieces hardly defines the word common by 21st century comparisons. Collectors of that period, while eager buyers, were limited in numbers. Barber Proofs have gained favor since, especially once it was known there are very few knock-out Gems left in existence. Pop 1; 5 finer in 67. This example should be called a Proof 67 (PCGS # 5688) .
Estimated Value $4,000 - 4,200.
The Larry Shapiro Collection; Number One PCGS Registry Proof Barber Quarters Set.
