Description:
Choice Brilliant Proof 1855 Arrows Quarter
1855 Arrows PR 64 PCGS. Breen (1988) estimates that perhaps as many as 20 1855 proofs may still exist today. This, of course, cannot come anywhere close to satisfying the demand for 19th century proof type, so the result is predictable: true proof Arrows quarters and halves are quite expensive. Briggs only mentions one characteristic for proofs of this date, that is, light recutting on QUAR.DOL. Breen (1977) states, "It is not certain that all proofs are from the same dies." That statement would explain this coin, as there is no apparent recutting on the reverse legend. Perhaps one obverse was paired with two reverse dies for striking proofs in this year.
When held beneath a light, the deeply mirrored fields flash strongly against mildly frosted devices. There is no toning on either side of this bright-white example. All of the design elements are fully articulated, including the peripheral stars on the obverse. A rare opportunity to acquire this very elusive proof issue. Population: 1 in PR 64, 2 finer (4/98). (NGC ID# 23WW, PCGS# 5551)
