1858 Seated Quarter, PR66
1858 25C PR66 NGC. At one time the reported mintage for all
proof silver coins in 1858 was just 80 pieces of each denomination.
As recently as 20 years ago, the figure of 80 coins was still used,
including in Larry Briggs' reference on the Seated quarters.
However, today, the Guide Book records a mintage of 300
proofs, a figure that is merely an estimate. The actual proof
mintage for all silver denominations in 1858 remains unknown. For
every denomination the number of certified proofs falls in the
range of 113 to 164 coins, figures that admittedly include
resubmissions, but are still substantially higher than the old
report of 80 pieces minted. This was the first year that proofs
were widely distributed to contemporary collectors.
