1863 Seated Quarter, PR66+ Cameo
1863 25C PR66+ Cameo PCGS. Briggs 4-D. Ex: Simpson. The 1863
Seated quarter is always a favorite issue among collectors because
of its low proof mintage of 460 pieces and its obvious Civil War
connection. This high-end Premium Gem is a spectacular example of
the date, taking top spot among all Cameo proofs at PCGS by the
margin of the Plus designation. The obverse features a blend of
soft violet toning around the borders and pale golden color at the
centers, while the reverse is richly toned in primarily ocean-blue
patina. Contrast remains strong between the flashy fields and
razor-sharp motifs. An exquisitely preserved, all-original No Motto
proof coin that would be challenging, if not impossible to upgrade.
Population: 5 in 66 (1 in 66+) Cameo, 0 finer (4/20).
Exquisite, All-Original No Motto Proof
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23WR, PCGS# 85559)
Weight: 6.22 grams
Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
