    Outstanding 1859 PR67 ★ Quarter
    The Single Finest in ★ Designation

    1859 25C PR67 ★ NGC. The year 1859 saw 800 proof quarters minted. NGC and PCGS population figures would seem to indicate that about 250 or so pieces have survived to the present day, not taking into account an unknown number of resubmissions and crossovers. The majority of the certified population falls into the PR62 to PR64 range. Fifty or so coins grade PR65 and finer.
    The Superb Gem offered in this lot is the single finest 1859 proof quarter with the coveted Star designation! The reasons for this are obvious. First, gorgeous medium intensity toning consisting of cobalt-blue, purple, and golden-brown at the borders frames lighter silver-gold centers, with each side extremely well matched. Second, a solid strike imparts virtually complete definition to the design elements. Finally, impeccable preservation is seen on both sides. These attributes synergistically yield outstanding overall eye appeal that would be difficult to surpass.(Registry values: P4)
