Description

1866 Motto Quarter, PR67
Impeccable Strike and Quality

1866 25C Motto PR67 PCGS. CAC. This originally toned Superb Gem proof shows the obverse covered in pastel rose and electric-blue. The reverse is bright and flashy, showing glassy mirrored fields and deep golden-brown, rose, and cobalt-blue patina near the lower left periphery. The proof strike is impeccably full throughout both sides.

Population Data (5/14): PCGS has seen two submissions in PR67 with none finer, but this piece is the sole PR67 (from either service) with the added CAC approval. NGC shows two each in PR67 and PR68, the latter including one with the Star designation.

Heritage Commentary: The 1866 Motto quarters were the first of their type, struck in the year following the conclusion of the Civil War. Only 725 proofs were struck of the Motto coinage. (A No Motto proof 1866 quarter is known, Judd-536 struck in silver, believed to be unique, technically not a pattern but made later as a muling and intended as a numismatic delicacy.) The Motto 1866 quarters in high grade, such as the present piece, are quite popular for type purposes.

Provenance: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2007), lot 1224.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 23WX, PCGS# 5565)
