    Tied For Finest Known 1856 Premium Proof Quarter

    1856 25C PR66 NGC. The estimated mintage for proof 1856 quarters is based upon the number of proof sets distributed that year; that is, approximately 100 sets. Of that number, it is believed that only 25-30 coins are believed extant today. Indeed, NGC and PCGS combined have certified only 37 examples, several of which are likely to be resubmissions. Furthermore, our records indicate that we have handled two specimens over the past ten years, and the issue has made appearances at 26 auctions within the past 20 years.
    The example we offer in this lot is a flashy, deeply mirrored proof that shows pinpoint striking details throughout. The centers are light golden-brown, transitioning to lavender, and then electric-blue around the rims. The surfaces are impeccably preserved, revealing no mentionable marks. Population: 2 in 66, 0 finer (8/05).(#5552) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 23WH, PCGS# 5552)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
