Description:
Elegant 1857 Quarter, PR66
One of the Finest Known
1857 25C PR66 NGC. Ex: P. Kaufman. The 1857 Premium Gem proof quarter from the Phil Kaufman collection is one of the three finest of the 50 coins graded by NGC and PCGS. Some of the certified coins are undoubtedly resubmissions of the same example, as the extant population is generally considered to number between 15 and 40 specimens (see Larry Briggs, Encyclopedia of Liberty Seated Quarters, and David Akers, May 1998 John Jay Pittman Collection, lot 1336).
A medley of low intensity cobalt-blue, golden-tan, orange, and yellow-green patination adorns the obverse of the Kaufman coin, while deeper hues of the same color palette adhere to the reverse. An exacting strike sharpens the design elements, including complete detail on the sandal and straps on Liberty's foot, the star centers, and the eagle's plumage. The surfaces of both sides are absolutely flawless, engendering elegant eye appeal. A coin of this quality and rarity is an important event, and one of the unquestioned highlights of the Kaufman collection.
From The Phil Kaufman Collection of Early Proof Sets, Part Four.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 23WJ, PCGS# 5553)
