Description:
1855 Arrows Quarter, PR65 Cameo
Tied for Finest Known Cameo
1855 25C PR65 Cameo NGC. Ex: P. Kaufman. A relatively small number of proof 1855 Seated quarters are known, including this impressive Gem Cameo that ranks as one of the finest certified with the Cameo designation. The proof mintage is unknown, but certainly small.

Survival estimates indicate that about 15-20 proof 1855 quarters are known. NGC and PCGS have each certified nine specimens, with each service assigning the Cameo designation to three coins. Our auction-records database indicates about 35 appearances of non-Cameo proofs over the last 20 years (many of which are duplicates), and a significantly smaller number of Cameo appearances.

Deep mirror fields on the Kaufman coin highlight the motifs that possess a somewhat granular texture. Aqua-blue and purple toning hugs the peripheries, while light golden-tan dominates the central areas. An impressive strike sharpens the design details, save for minor softness on the stars along the right border, yet these still display most of the centrils. An occasional faint hairline mingles with die polish lines in the fields, but the surfaces on both sides are well preserved. Some light as-made planchet lines through the 1 and 8 of the date did not strike out. A simply gorgeous coin for the numerical grade.
Ex: Phil Kaufman Collection of Early Seated Proof Sets, Part Three/Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 2396.(Registry values: P3) (PCGS# 85551)
