1915. PCGS graded Proof 67 Cameo PQ CAC Approved. Only 450 minted. Wonderful rainbow toning on both sides. Luminous, mirror luster and first-rate frosted detail for this difficult issue helps to elevate the lovely toning right into your field of vision. The surfaces are exquisite. The toning sublime. The grade, tied for Finest at PCGS. In other Proofs without this wealth of toning spectrum, the strike is almost more important than the mint bloom or color. Just the same, sheer boldness of strike furnishes the consignor something to crow about and something for bidders to appreciate when establishing an amount the bid. We expect strong competition.

(This superb toned Proof has the appearance of a coin from an original Proof set stored in the mint tissue wrappers for the better part of a hundred years. In the early 1990s, a group of several dozen original Proof sets, now NGC or PCGS certified and sold individually, hit the market. They made quite a splash and were quickly absorbed by eager buyers.) Pop 2; none finer at PCGS (PCGS # 85701) .
Estimated Value $14,000 - 15,000.
The Larry Shapiro Collection; Number One PCGS Registry Proof Barber Quarters Set.

Realized $17,218
