Description

    1855 Arrows Quarter, PR66
    Ex: Eliasberg, Sole Finest Certified

    1855 25C Arrows PR66 NGC. Briggs 5-E. Ex: Eliasberg. This Premium Gem proof offers mottled violet and blue toning over orange iridescence on each side. The date appears shallowly impressed and parallel striations are seen throughout, a planchet characteristic from the draw bench.

    Variety: Briggs 5-E. The date slopes downward from left to right, the stars are flat to weak, and QUAR. DOL. is lightly recut.

    Population Data (7/14): This is the only piece NGC has seen in PR66, with none finer. PCGS has certified none higher than PR65.

    Heritage Commentary: Approximately 15 to 20 pieces are extant, an estimate cited by both Walter Breen (1977) and PCGS' Coinfacts website. However, the exact number of proofs struck remains unknown. In any event, this piece is the finest certified and possibly the finest known representative of a very rare issue.

    Provenance: Harlan P. Smith Collection (Chapman Brothers, 5/1906); John H. Clapp Estate via Stack's (1942); Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. (Bowers and Merena, 4/1997), lot 1459; Benson Collection, Part III (Goldberg, 2/2003), lot 416.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 23WW, PCGS# 5551)
