Description

Choice Cameo Proof 1855 Quarter Dollar Rarity

1855 25C PR64 Cameo PCGS. Walter Breen believed that only 20 Proofs of this issue survive from an unknown mintage, probably not much higher. Our current research into this field suggests that the true total number of proofs known is slightly higher than previously believed. Perhaps as many as 50 Proofs exist. The 1854 and 1855 quarter dollars with arrows by the date are common enough coins, but Proof examples are highly-prized rarities. This Choice Proof is sharply struck with full details on both sides; only the two lowest stars at the right are lacking any detail, and even these have their radial lines. A few vertical striations are visible on both sides, mostly near the peripheries. A few tiny lintmarks are visible on both sides, especially in the fields of the obverse.(#85551) (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 23WW, PCGS# 85551)
