Description

Elusive 1866 Motto Quarter, MS65

1866 25C Motto MS65 PCGS. Larry Briggs' update to his series reference that appeared a couple of years ago in the Coin Dealer Newsletter notes that only a single die was used to produce the 16,800 coins, and that the issue is rarer in lower grades than Mint State. (But it is also rare in Gem condition.) The die was damaged early, so that most examples including the present piece show weakness on Liberty's left (facing) and correspondingly on the reverse. The strike on this Gem is bold at the peripheries. Appealing silver-gray coloration and a paucity of abrasions further enhance its desirability. Population: 7 in 65, 1 finer (3/10).(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 23UB, PCGS# 5468)
