1895. PCGS graded Proof 68 Cameo PQ CAC Approved. Only 880 minted. A wonderful white gem. The satin-like gleam of originality on the face of Liberty and the eagles body is safe and sound from even the slightest imperfection. Cameo-frosted against deep mirrors, the coin is imbued with old-fashioned Victorian elegance in its conservative design as well as in the atypical state of preservation. Well deserving the Proof 68 grade! With such gorgeous silvery luster, it confirms the grade that the coin is struck with mathematical precision by the dies. A coin of this caliber is the numismatists staff of life. Nothing less will serve as a pinch-hitter when it comes to the desired Registry Set prominence. Pop 4; none finer at PCGS (PCGS # 85681) .
Estimated Value $12,000 - 14,000.
The Larry Shapiro Collection; Number One PCGS Registry Proof Barber Quarters Set.
