    1870 Quarter, PR67+ Cameo
    Ex: Newman, Splendid Patina

    1870 25C PR67+ Cameo PCGS. CAC. Briggs 2-B. Ex: Newman-Simpson. Although the Guide Book reports a proof production of 1,000 pieces, it appears that many 1870 proof sets remained in inventory at the U.S. Mint and were melted as unsold. The (9/20) PCGS Population is four as Deep Cameo, 61 as Cameo, and 178 without cameo contrast. That is a total of 243 pieces, a number inflated by resubmissions over the past 35 years. The present lot is the single-highest graded at PCGS, the sole specimen graded PR67+ with or without a Cameo or Deep Cameo finish. It displays remarkably beautiful ocean-blue, rose-red, butter-gold, and magenta toning. The strike is intricate and the eye appeal is exceptional.
