Select 1869 Proof Quarter Eagle--Only 25 Struck1869 PR 63 NGC. Only 25 proofs were struck this year from a total mintage of 4,345 coins. It is estimated that today perhaps 12-15 proofs are still traceable as such. Proofs of this year can be distinguished from business strikes by the presence of a diagonal die scratch above the base of the L in LIBERTY, which is plainly evident on this piece. Lightly hairlined, the surfaces have a hazy gray patina over the orange-gold color of the coin. The only distinguishing mark is a short cut above the beak of the eagle. (NGC ID# 287P, PCGS# 7895)
