    Description

    1857 Quarter, Resplendent Gem
    Multicolored Reflective Proof

    1857 25C PR65 NGC. CAC. This glossy proof is intensely colored across the deeply mirrored fields and devices, with attractive, ocean-blue, violet, and lime-green toning on both sides. Gold and magenta accents appear at the margins and on the central motifs. Struck in the year prior to "official" reported mintages for proofs by the Mint, PCGS estimates 75 to 100 proofs are known in all grades, while the Guide Book no longer provides an estimate of the proof mintage for 1857. We believe between 100 and 150 pieces were struck. This near-Gem is problem-free and a great selection for the collector of early toned proofs. A few Mint-caused roller marks angle across the eagle, well-hidden in the plumage. CAC endorsed for quality and eye appeal. Census: 5 in 65, 4 finer (11/15).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 23WJ, PCGS# 5553)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
