1897. PCGS graded Proof 66+CAM PQ CAC Approved. Only 731 minted. A lovely white gem cameo. This resolute Superb Gem has outstanding, indeed blazing silvery color. Lustrous and sharply struck with top-quality almost pristine fields. The finish imparted by the dies is no less praiseworthy, and we note incredibly bold contrast between thickly frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields. As a whole, the Proof 1897 is a well-produced issue, and many survivors exhibit one or both of these characteristics. Everyone knows that luster isn't the only side of a grade. So too, the detail, and here the devices are as sharp as can be. What truly sets this coin apart, therefore, is the uncommon level of surface preservation. Pop 1; 11 finer in 67CAM (PCGS # 85683) .
Estimated Value $3,200 - 3,400.
The Larry Shapiro Collection; Number One PCGS Registry Proof Barber Quarters Set.
