Description:
Extraordinary 1856 Quarter
PR67 Cameo
1856 25C PR67 Cameo NGC. Ex: P. Kaufman. Briggs 10-H. NGC has certified just two Cameo proofs as Superb Gem pieces, and they are the two finest examples of the date known to us. The current offering is one of these two pieces.
Perhaps as many as 100 proof quarters were minted in 1856, with this total combining the distribution of sets and a few individual examples of the denomination. Based on estimates by Walter Breen (1989), Larry Briggs (1991), and David Akers (1998), survivors are thought to number between 25 to 30 coins. NGC and PCGS have certified 51 1856 proof quarters to date, including eight Cameos. Several of these specimens are undoubtedly resubmissions.
Upright 5 in the date as always for the 1856 quarters. The date is high and slightly closer to the base of Liberty, about centered horizontally with the shield point midway between the 1 and 8. Faint die lines are evident in the date area, extending up from the border, with others elsewhere in the obverse fields. The first five stars show faint recutting and the lower edge of the skirt line is minutely doubled. All known 1856 proof quarters have a peculiar and characteristic reverse die bulge extending entirely through the wing from AM of AMERICA, to the arrows and OL of DOL. Called the "signature die" for this proof issue by Dave Bowers. Heavy die polish lines are located below the eagle.
This is an amazing Cameo proof with full brilliance on both sides. An exacting strike leaves complete delineation on the design features, even on the minute details. Impeccably preserved surfaces reveal just a couple of faint ticks left of the rock, and a couple of more to the right of the eagle's neck. These are mentioned solely for pedigree purposes. Census: 1 in 67 Cameo, 1 finer (10/08).
