    1858 Quarter, PR64 Cameo
    Scarce Early Proof Issue

    1858 25C PR64 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Briggs 5-E. Ex: Simpson. In 1858, the Mint began marketing proof sets directly to the general public, whereas in earlier years proof coins would only be obtained by well-connected dealers and collectors or foreign dignitaries. Proof quarter production increased in 1858 to supply foreseen demand for proof sets, although proofs of this date are still significantly scarcer than those of later years. Most of the 1858 proof quarters known today are non-Cameos, as PCGS reports only a dozen Cameo pieces in all grades with one Deep Cameo coin. This near-Gem example is sharp and deeply reflective, showing few discernible marks. Delicate champagne toning warms the fields, although the coin appears nearly brilliant when angled into a strong light. Population: 8 in 64 (2 in 64+) Cameo, 1 finer (9/20).(Registry values: P5)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23WK, PCGS# 85554)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
