1912. PCGS graded Proof 67 Cameo CAC Approved. Only 700 minted. A hint of gold tone. A boldly original, mostly white-surface coin whose high-end depth of detail in the strike complements the equally fresh cameo mint bloom. Far in advance as the luster goes, so too are the designs: Fully struck in all areas with pinpoint detailing on the key high points suggesting careful die preparation and equal attention to the minting process that produced this remarkable specimen.

No review of the Barber Quarter series would be complete without a tabulated list of those that are within shouting distance of "finest known" -- or even an untabulated one -- of the three best examples graded by PCGS (once unstarred actors before the advent of the third-party Registry system which made them headline famous) during the past few years it has come to be known just how few there are in Proof 67 and above. To be precise: Pop 2; 1 finer in 68CAM (PCGS # 85698) .
Estimated Value $6,000 - 6,400.
The Larry Shapiro Collection; Number One PCGS Registry Proof Barber Quarters Set.

Realized $6,958
