Description:
Striking 1866 Motto Seated Quarter, MS65
1866 25C Motto MS65 PCGS. This a stunning Gem that is among the finest known pieces of this first-year-of-issue type coin. The mintage of this date was just 16,800 business strikes and another 725 proofs. Although Walter Breen reported that many Mint State examples were recovered from "proof sets" of the year, we doubt that the quantity was all that high. This example is fully brilliant with a hint of champagne toning. The fields are reflective, with fully lustrous devices and excellent cameo contrast. Noticeable weakness of the designs at the center of the obverse and reverse is diagnostic for the issue, and is used to distinguish business strikes from proofs. Population: 6 in 65, 1 finer (3/09).
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 23UB, PCGS# 5468)
