Description:
Rare Mint State 1866-S Quarter
1866-S 25C MS62 NGC. Briggs 1-A, the only known dies. Prior to the Crime of 1873, bullion depositors at the San Francisco Mint preferred the more convenient Half Dollar denomination, so mintages of Quarters were low by comparison. As consumer prices remained very high on the frontier, however, those pieces that flowed from the San Francisco Mint's presses entered circulation and remained there for many years. This extremely scarce Mint State example is satiny and mostly brilliant, with few appreciable surface marks. Faint die clashing is evident on both sides. Census: 1 in 62, 2 finer (12/05).(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 23UC, PCGS# 5469)
