Struck to a tiny quantity of just 380 pieces, the 1914 Barber quarter boasts the lowest Proof mintage of the entire series. Only 340 are thought to survive for today's collectors, with fewer than 125 pieces preserved in Gem Proof condition. This availability is further limited when production quality is taken into account, as very few show the necessary contrast to qualify for a Cameo designation. This piece is a remarkable exception and will surely interest advance specialists of the series.PCGS# 85700.
