1893. PCGS graded Proof 67 Deep Cameo PQ CAC Approved. Only 792 minted. Frosty and white. Has the black and white appearance. One would be hard pressed to imagine a more pristine 1893, even if one were known to either NGC or PCGS. The richly frosted, rotating white devices, like summer lightning, provide a surge of unimpeded mint contrast for the surrounding field. No more than the luster comes a desirable strike: This piece is struck with scientific exactness throughout the main devices. The devices were struck with such force and energy by the dies that all design elements including the star radials show boldly. Only the paucity of words in the 800,000-or-so English language limits our ability to come to a viable depiction of this coins awe-inspiring beauty and fresh appearance. Pop 5; none finer at PCGS (PCGS # 95679) .
Estimated Value $7,500 - 8,000.
The Larry Shapiro Collection; Number One PCGS Registry Proof Barber Quarters Set.

Realized $8,625
