1911. PCGS graded Proof 68 Cameo PQ CAC Approved. Only 543 minted. Wonderful rainbow toning. Probabably the finest graded. When it comes to eye-popping contrast, perhaps no other second-decade 20th century silver Proof issues have greater consistency in this regard than those struck in 1911. The near perfect Proof specimen offered here illustrates this point, being fully original on each side and displaying a predictably dramatic deep cameo contrast over each side overlaid by the heavenly color. The strike is unapologetic with no areas of weakness or flaws whatsoever. After very close examination with magnification, this cataloger wonders why this coin did not grade even higher! There are no marks, scratches, hairlines, spots, or flaws of any sort that can serve as future identifiers on this fine specimen. The toning is what everyone will remember. This one is worth a close review by the true connoisseur of Barber coinage and then a firm bid to confirm its remarkable quality. Pop 4; none finer at PCGS (PCGS # 85697) .
Estimated Value $13,000 - 15,000.
The Larry Shapiro Collection; Number One PCGS Registry Proof Barber Quarters Set.
