Description

    1868 Seated Quarter, PR66
    One Example Finer at Both Services
    Ex: Gardner

    1868 25C PR66 PCGS. Briggs 2-B. Quarter dollar mintages remained low in 1868, both in circulation-strike and proof formats. The Philadelphia Mint accomplished a run of 29,400 coins for circulation (though silver did not circulate widely at the time) plus 600 proofs. Like the years immediately preceding and following it, the proofs of 1868 are subject to stronger-than-average demand because of the limited number of well-preserved circulation strikes. Navy and greenish-blue borders give way to red-violet and pumpkin-gold hues, surrounding brilliant centers on each side of this high-end example -- a Premium Gem proof of exceptional quality. The pleasingly contrasted surfaces fail to yield any noticeable marks, save for a small planchet flaw (as made) above (I)N G(OD) on the reverse. Population: 9 in 66, 0 finer (1/16).
