    1866 With Motto Seated Quarter
    Dazzling PR66+ Deep Cameo

    1866 25C PR66+ Deep Cameo PCGS. CAC. Briggs 2-B. In March 1865, Congress passed legislation mandating the inclusion of the motto IN GOD WE TRUST on all gold and silver denominations of a size large enough to incorporate the inscription without crowding the other design elements. Implementation of the mandate took effect the following year in 1866. Among the coins changed was the quarter dollar, and aside from a unique No Motto representative struck under special circumstances, all the proof quarters produced in 1866 exhibit the beloved motto.

    For the collector, finding an example of this issue is not prohibitively difficult in the absolute sense, but a search for a piece with Deep Cameo contrast will prove long and tiresome. PCGS has certified just nine Deep Cameo examples in all grades, with the present coin being the sole finest (11/14). Both sides showcase bold white-on-black contrast, with deep mirrors and heavily frosted devices. The obverse is largely untoned, saved for a peripheral ring of blue and violet, while the reverse exhibits a deeper array of same with intermingled sun-gold and mint-green hues. An incredibly eye-appealing proof Seated quarter.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 3TXU, PCGS# 95565)
