    Visually Captivating Cameo Near-Gem Proof 1861 Seated Quarter

    1861 25C PR64 Cameo PCGS. Briggs 7-E, the proof die marriage of the 1861 Seated quarter. An elusive date from the early years of increased proof production at the Philadelphia Mint, the 1861 does not appear to have been well received by the collecting public at the time of issue. Four hundred coins of the original 1,000-piece delivery were melted as unsold, leaving a net mintage of just 600 coins.
    This near-Gem displays razor-sharp design elements and flashy reflectivity in the fields. The silver-white devices are boldly contrasted over jet-black fields. A few wispy contact marks on the obverse prevent the Gem grade assessment, without impairing the splendid visual appeal of the piece. Population: 1 in 64 Cameo, 2 finer (7/06).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 23WN, PCGS# 85557)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
