||1872 25C PR68 NGC. This 1872 PR68 Seated quarter, tied for finest known, offers marvelous eye appeal. The color and overall quality are consistent with the other exquisite Newman Seated quarter proofs from the 1860s-1870s. The obverse exhibits rich cobalt-blue toning in the fields, with lighter blue, magenta, and gold at the center, and it is somewhat more deeply patinated than the blue, russet, and gold reverse, with a full strike throughout both sides. This piece is one of only two PR68s at NGC, with one in PR68 Cameo (10/13). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
