Description

Equally Elusive 1855 Arrows Proof Quarter

1855 Arrows PR 63 PCGS. From the same source as the preceding and obviously housed in a similar fashion, as an identical streak of russet toning is seen above the eagle. The surfaces on this coin are equally well mirrored and show better contrast with the devices on the obverse. Most of the obverse stars are a touch on the weak side, those on the right being noticeably flat, a characteristic found on other proofs of this date. There are traces of blue and golden toning about the obverse periphery, and a tiny blemish to the right of the second star is an easy identifying feature. Although Breen estimates twice as many 1855 proofs having survived as 1854s (20 pieces), our experience shows this proof issue to be at least as rare, if not rarer. Population: 2 in 63, 2 finer (9/97). (NGC ID# 23WW, PCGS# 5551)
