Description

    Exciting Gem Cameo Proof 1870 Quarter

    1870 25C PR65 Cameo NGC. Very lightly toned with a hint of lemon color. The strike is razor sharp, and the fields are extremely well preserved. There is a minor planchet flaw (as struck) above the olive leaves. The frosty devices have irrefutable cameo contrast with the dark, reflective fields. Although 1,000 proof 1870 Quarters were struck, the low PCGS and NGC populations imply that the majority of the production has not survived. Most proofs of this issue are in PR62 to PR64 grades. Cameo Gems are exceedingly rare. Population: 2 in 65 as Cameo, with none finer (4/02).
    From the Indiana Collection. (NGC ID# 29XD, PCGS# 85569)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
