Magnificent Proof 1895 Barber Quarter1895 Barber Quarter. Proof-68 Cameo (PCGS). CAC.A stunning example in every regard, this coin is graced with sharply contrasting velvety frosted features on a glass-like smooth field. Overall, the blazing white color ever so gradually turns to a pale gold patina close to the dentils and rim, all of which revealing no handling marks or nicks of any consequence. Most surviving specimens are found at the Proof-64 to Proof-66 level, leaving only a precious few at such a rarefied level state of preservation as here. The production figure for Proof 1895 quarters of 880 coins is typical for other quarter Proof issues from the period. Interestingly, on almost every Proof example there is a raised faint thin line on Liberty's nose shaped like a shepherd's crook left from a lint mark that was present on the master hub when the Proof dies were prepared. A virtually unimprovable specimen for the discriminating nineteenth century Proof coin specialist or the very finest of type cabinets.PCGS Population: 9; only 1 finer within designation.PCGS# 85681.
