    Description

    1862 Quarter, Variegated PR67 ★ Cameo
    One of the Finest Examples Seen

    1862 25C PR67 ★ Cameo NGC. Briggs 5-E. Shades of electric-blue, rose, violet, and champagne-gold blend into one another from the rims toward the interiors, covering all but the central reverse. Cameo contrast heightens the appeal, and the deeply mirrored fields are seemingly pristine.

    Variety: Briggs 5-E. The date is level, and the stars show full centers. On the reverse, the denomination and shield verticals are lightly recut.

    Population Data (9/15): There are seven PR67 Cameo coins at NGC (resubmissions likely included), but only two have a Star designation. The service reports one PR68 Cameo finer. The top examples at PCGS are three in PR66 Cameo.

    Heritage Commentary: Only 430 of the 550 proof quarters struck in 1862 were sold, and the rest were melted. Non-Cameo examples are moderately available through the Choice proof level, while the issue becomes scarce to rare in Gem and above. All Cameo proofs are rare, and this Star-designated Superb Gem is easily one of the finest pieces we have had the pleasure of handling.

    Provenance: Purchased from Larry Whitlow (9/2008).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 2A4Z, PCGS# 85558)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
