1894. PCGS graded Proof 66 Cameo CAC Approved. Only 972 minted. A nice white coin. Without doubt the most visually stunning feature of this coin is its soft, frosted mint luster on the cameo devices whose sharp relief provides an ideal counterpoint for the deep mirror surface. Full reflective luster on both sides, in fact. In former days, the mirror quality was enough to determine a coin's status. But today, just as important is the strike: there is no deviation in the sharp relief seen on Liberty or the eagle, not even in the centers of the coin where non-Proofs tend to have some problems. Pop 16; 5 finer, 2 in 66+CAM, 2 in 67CAM, 1 in 67+CAM (PCGS # 85680) .
Estimated Value $2,300 - 2,400.
The Larry Shapiro Collection; Number One PCGS Registry Proof Barber Quarters Set.
