$0.25 1942 Mild Cameo Proof Washington 25c Quarter - PCGS PR64

Proof Washington Quarters before 1950 are not known for having cameo contrast, and cameos made during those years are therefore not pursued by unaware collectors.

This 1942 Quarter, housed in an old green PCGS PR64 rattler (Cert. No. 1117040), surprisingly exhibits mild cameo contrast beneath hazy original toning. 

Certainly an outlier in this series, this coin should be considered for purchase by any serious cameo collector.
