    1863 Seated Quarter, PR66+ Cameo
    Exquisite, All-Original No Motto Proof

    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).
