    Description

    1862 Quarter, PR67 Cameo
    Ice-White Surfaces, Exceptional Contrast

    1862 25C PR67 Cameo NGC. The recorded proof mintage of 1862 quarters totaled 550 coins, although only a little over 430 of those were sold, and the rest were melted at a later date, according to Walter Breen in the Complete Encyclopedia of United States Coins. Breen suggests that all of the coins were sold as part of proof sets, not individually.

    This impressive Civil War-era proof is elusive in top grades. The present Superb Gem proof is entirely brilliant with untoned, ice-white surfaces. The designs are boldly defined with frosty silver luster, and the contrast is exceptional. Census: 5 in 67 Cameo, 0 finer (6/13).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2008), lot 372, which brought $11,500.
    From The Greensboro Collection, Part IV.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 23WP, PCGS# 85558)
