Description

Scarce 1859 Near-Gem Proof Quarter

1859 25C PR64 PCGS. Although Mint records indicate that 800 proofs were struck in this year, an unknown number were melted at year's end as unsold, leaving this issue with a relatively high official mintage but low availability in all grades. This example portrays lovely medium-intensity golden-brown toning over proof surfaces, framed by a narrow ring of deep gunmetal-blue and crimson coloration around the rims. The design features are exquisitely struck throughout. A couple of trivial marks on the obverse motif are noted for accuracy. Population: 40 in 64, 16 finer (3/04).
From the JFS Collection.(#5555) (Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 23WL, PCGS# 5555)
