1860 Quarter, Toned PR65+ Cameo
1860 25C PR65+ Cameo PCGS. Briggs 9-H. Ex: Simpson. The Mint
started charging collectors a 13 cent proofing fee in 1860, the
year proofs were first sold publicly. The moderate price spike
resulted in far fewer proofs being sold than were struck. Of the
1,000 coins minted in 1860, 458 pieces were melted as remainders at
the end of the year. This gorgeous high-end Gem Cameo
representative avoided that fate and has clearly been well-cared
for by generations of collectors. It retains a layer of dusky
patina that comes alive when rotated in the light, showcasing
eye-catching blue, violet, and golden-orange colors. The central
devices are thickly frosted, standing out against the flashy fields
around. Population: 8 in 65 (3 in 65+) Cameo, 3 finer in this
First Year of Public Proof Sales
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23WM, PCGS# 85556)
Weight: 6.22 grams
Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
