Description

Premium Gem Proof 1857 Quarter
Moderately Toned Specimen

1857 25C PR66 NGC. Deeply reflective fields shine brightly through the golden-brown central toning that turns blue around the margins. As with all proofs from this year, the mintage started out low and the number of survivors today is even less. Perhaps as few as 15-20 proof quarters were struck in 1857, the last year before the Mint's regular sales for minor and silver proof coinage were set in place. This example is tied with two other PR66 coins at NGC for finest non-Cameo examples in the combined certified population (3/13).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 23WJ, PCGS# 5553)
