    Select Mint State 1835 Quarter Dollar, Prooflike Obverse

    1835 25C MS63 PCGS. B-1, R.1.The obverse of this lovely quarter is fully prooflike while the reverse has frosty silver luster. Fully brilliant without any indication of toning. The obverse is an earlier state than was known to Browning, without any indication of the die crack from the base of the digit 5. The reverse has the usually seen die crack in the field above the eagle. This must have been struck almost immediately after the few proofs, as most business strikes show the obverse die crack. Alternatively, this may have been a one-sided Proof with the obverse intended to be a proof striking, the reverse not polished. The logic for producing one-sided proof coins, and some such coins are actually documented, would have been that only the side visible in a presentation case needed to be made with special care. Polishing the coinage dies to produce the mirrored finish would only have been necessary for the side that would actually be visible in the case.(#5354) (Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 23S2, PCGS# 5354)
