    Single Finest Known Cameo Proof 1865 Seated Quarter

    1865 25C PR68 Cameo NGC. Ex: P. Kaufman. Briggs 3-B. There are currently five 1865 Seated Quarters graded PR68 at NGC and PCGS. This may seem odd for a silver issue from the final year of the Civil War and, indeed, many proof 1865 Quarters were probably carelessly handled during the general chaos of the era. The obverse die of this issue is readily identifiable by the presence of a few small lumps (as produced) on Liberty's portrait. The most prominent of these are located on Liberty's torso and right (facing) thigh. Also, the point of the shield is over the upright of the 1 in the date and the left base of the same digit is over the left side of a denticle.
    This is the only PR68 Seated Quarter of this date that has been certified with a Cameo designation (6/04). A simply beautiful specimen, both sides display stark contrast between the fully frosted devices and deeply mirrored, glassy fields. Light golden iridescence overlays the features, none of which reveal any grade-limiting blemishes. We expect that specialists will follow bidding on this coin with great enthusiasm and interest.
    Ex: FUN Signature Sale (Heritage, 1/03), lot 6723, which realized $19,550.
