|1892 25C PR68 S Cameo NGC. Type One Reverse. The Type One reverse hub was only used in this year. It is easily distinguished as the left (facing) wing of the eagle covers less than half of the E in UNITED. This hub variant is the scarcer of the two. This exceptionally well-preserved proof displays wider bands of rose and blue toning on the obverse compared to the thinner bands seen around the margin of the reverse. The devices are nicely frosted and contrast well against the strongly mirrored fields of this always-popular first year of issue for the Barber design. Census: 5 in 68 (3 in 68 S), 0 finer (10/13). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
