||1895 25C PR68+ S Cameo NGC. CAC. Among proof type coins, condition is everything. This is an amazing coin. The number of PR68 Cameo pieces is deceiving as there are a total of 17 such coins that have been certified by NGC, with one finer (10/13). However, this is the only PR68 Cameo that also has the Plus and Star designation. In addition to seemingly perfect surfaces, this piece also displays the concentric rings of color seen on many of the Newman proof type coins. Even through the toning, though, the contrast between the fields and devices is readily apparent. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
