    Colorfully Toned Gem Proof 1869 Quarter

    1869 25C PR66 PCGS. Like the other P-mint Motto Seated Quarters from the 1860s, the 1869 was produced in limited numbers as a business strike (in this case, only 16,000 pieces). As a result, date collectors seeking to complete high-quality sets are often forced to call upon exceptionally well preserved proofs to represent this issue. This survivor from a proof mintage of 600 pieces is a perfect candidate. The design features are well struck throughout, for the most part revealing razor-sharp detail. A rich layer of crimson-gray toning is framed by turquoise-blue coloration at the margins on the obverse. The reverse toning is similar, but much lighter, allowing the proof fields on this side to realize a somewhat greater intensity of brilliance. The lovingly preserved surfaces are virtually devoid of any serious contact marks. Population: 3 in 66, 0 finer (11/05).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 23X2, PCGS# 5568)
