Service Catalog # 85588
Denomination 25C
Description 1887 25C PR68+ S Cameo NGC. CAC. Mintages of the circulation-strike Seated quarters and half dollars would stay low from 1879 through 1889 in Philadelphia, although San Francisco would strike more than 1.2 million 1888-S quarters. The 1887 quarters saw 10,000 circulation strikes complementing the proof mintage of 710 pieces. This PR68+ S Cameo example shows thin vertical lines in the left portion of the shield on reverse, a characteristic that proofs of this year share. The fully struck surfaces show generous eye appeal and much field-device contrast, with a color palette shared by many other proofs in this decades-long (and decades-old) collection. This is the sole PR68 Cameo graded of the issue at either NGC or PCGS, even disregarding the Plus and Star designations (10/13). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $41,125.00 .
