Denomination 25C
Description 1900 25C PR68 S Cameo NGC. CAC. The 1900 has an enduring popularity as a turn-of-the-century type coin. This Star-designated quarter is the numerically finest of this date certified by NGC, its closest rivals being two PR68 Cameo coins and one non-Cameo. The centers of each side retain generous portions of mint brilliance, surrounded by pale rose and deeper sky-blue toning around the peripheries. Magnification reveals subtleties in the patina with faint streaks of other colors interspersed along with occasional dabs of brilliance. The basically untoned centers give the viewer an unimpeded view of the frosted central devices, which contrast sharply against the deeply reflective proof fields. A perfectly preserved proof of this popular date. Census: 5 in 68 (1 in 68 S, 1 in 68+ S), 0 finer (10/13). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $14,100.00 .
