1866 Motto Quarter, PR64 ★ Cameo
1866 25C Motto PR64 ★ Cameo NGC. Briggs 2-B. Although a few
wispy grazes in the fields limit the technical grade, the eye
appeal of this Choice Cameo Star-designated NGC proof easily
compares to that of higher-graded representatives. Each side is
richly patinated in bands of electric-blue, rose-violet, and amber
with mint-green accents. The central reverse maintains a degree of
brilliance. Dramatic field-device contrast completes the universal
Delightful Eye Appeal
Variety: Briggs 2-B, identified by a spur on the dentil below the right edge of the final 6 in the date.
Population Data (9/15): NGC has seen eight PR64 Cameo coins, but this is the only Star-designated example. There are 16 finer submissions at that firm. PCGS reports 10 submissions in PR64 Cameo with 11 finer.
Heritage Commentary: The reported mintage for the year stands at 725 proofs, but Breen suggests fewer specimens may have been struck than reported, as Uncirculated coins were occasionally included in sets. Whether or not that is the case, survivors as fine as this with Cameo and Star designations are elusive.
Provenance: Purchased from Larry Whitlow (9/2008).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 23WX, PCGS# 85565)
Weight: 6.22 grams
Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
