Description

Fully Original Proof 1871 Seated Quarter, Conditionally Rare Superb Gem Preservation

1871 25C PR67 NGC. Ex: P. Kaufman. Briggs 1-A. According to both Larry Briggs (The Comprehensive Encyclopedia of United States Liberty Seated Quarters, 1991) and current third party grading population reports, a number of extant proof 1871 Seated Quarter are impaired to one degree or another. Not so the present Superb Gem. With smooth surfaces and gorgeous, original toning, it is little wonder that this coin is one of the finest certified survivors of this proof delivery. Off center swirls of reddish-copper color are seen toward the upper right obverse and lower right reverse borders. The balance of the features are awash in cobalt-blue shades that yield to golden undertones at direct light angles. Every feature is fully struck with glistening mint brilliance. Population: 2 in 67, there is only one finer (10/02).
From the Philip Kaufman Collection. (NGC ID# 23X4, PCGS# 5570)
