1899. PCGS graded Proof 66 Cameo. Only 846 minted. Fully white gem cameo. Soft satin-like devices support careening mirrors with lustrous silver color. Nicely struck with just outstanding detail at devices. Early Proofs like this 1899 Barber Quarter were shipped from the Mint in sulfur-laden tissue paper wrappers similar to jewelers tissue, and the coins toned very quickly as a result, leading one to the conclusion that this piece must have been taken from the Mint envelope as soon as it was received in the mail. It shows blinding white radiance. Pop 4; 3 finer, 2 in 67CAM, 1 in 68CAM (PCGS # 85685) .
Estimated Value $2,500 - 2,700.
The Larry Shapiro Collection; Number One PCGS Registry Proof Barber Quarters Set.

Realized $3,105
