Description

Pleasing 1855 Quarter, PR64 Cameo

1855 25C PR64 Cameo PCGS. CAC. The 2010 Guide Book gives no mintage figures for the 1855 quarter proof. Larry Briggs (1991) gives a figure of "15+ proofs," though it is not clear whether this is the estimated mintage or number known. Walter Breen (1989) says "possibly 15 to 20 survive in all," and PCGS/NGC population data indicate 17 certified examples.
Light reddish-tan patina exists on the rims of this near-Gem and hints of this same color palette show up on both faces under magnification. Mirrored fields yield strong contrast with the moderately frosted, sharply struck devices. Some unobtrusive wispy field marks preclude Gem classification but do not detract from the coin's pleasing eye appeal, aptly recognized by the CAC green label. Population: 2 in 64 Cameo, 1 finer (6/09).(Registry values: P3) (PCGS# 85551)
