    1859 Quarter Dollar, PR66 Cameo
    Type One Obverse, Type Two Reverse

    1859 25C PR66 Cameo NGC. Breen-4019, Briggs-2C. Type One obverse, Type Two reverse. Three die scratches from the tip of the rock toward star 1 are clearly visible. On the reverse, recutting of QUAR. DOL. is also plain. Only 800 proof quarter dollars were struck in 1859. The devices of this Gem proof are highly lustrous with white silvery frosty. The design elements contrast nicely with the deeply mirrored fields providing stunning visual appeal. A small lintmark in the field just right of, and slightly below, Liberty's knee resembles a backward question mark, and will serve as a pedigree marker for future researchers. All design features are boldly defined and are surrounded by wavy fields, typical of most proof coins from this era. Census: 10 in 66 Cameo, 1 finer (3/13).
