Multicolor Proof Superb Gem 1861 Quarter1861 25C PR67 NGC. Type Two Obverse and Reverse. Lime-green and sky-blue dominate the obverse, although wisps of ruby-red grace the lower border. The reverse features iridescent electric-blue and mauve patina that gradually lightens as the centers are approached. This exquisitely struck Superb Gem has a splendidly preserved reverse, and the obverse is also clean and attractive. Although 1,000 proofs were recorded as struck, the majority of these were never issued. Breen states "fewer than 400 sold, the rest melted." NGC has certified a scant total of 89 pieces in all grades. and among those, the present coin is tied with one other for the honor of finest certified. Population: 2 in 67, 0 finer (6/10).
