    Outstanding 1859 Seated Quarter
    PR67 ★ , Sole Finest at NGC

    1859 25C PR67 ★ NGC. The year 1859 saw 800 proof quarters minted. NGC and PCGS population figures indicate that about 250 or so survive, less an unknown number of resubmissions and crossovers. Most of the certified population falls into the PR62-PR64 range, with 50 or so coins grading PR65 and finer. The present Superb Gem is the single finest 1859 proof quarter with the coveted Star designation. Gorgeous medium-intensity toning in cobalt-blue, purple, and golden-brown hues at the borders frames lighter silver-gold centers. The strike is full throughout, and the piece is impeccably preserved. The outstanding overall eye appeal would be difficult to surpass.
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 5/2008), lot 339, which realized $25,300.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 23WL, PCGS# 5555)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
