Description

    1870 Seated Quarter, PR67 Ultra Cameo
    Brilliant and Strongly Contrasted
    Among the Finest Known

    1870 25C PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC. CAC. Briggs 2-B. One-thousand proof Seated Liberty quarters were stuck in 1870, a relatively high number for the With Motto type. Likewise, a correspondingly large number of proofs have been certified by NGC and PCGS (totaling 353 examples). The two services, however, have seen fit to assign the Ultra/Deep Cameo designation to a mere seven coins (11/13), with the piece among the finest.

    Deeply mirrored fields and heavily frosted motifs present breathtaking cameo contrast on both sides of this Superb Gem. Additionally, a powerful strike has imparted razor-sharp definition on the design elements, further enhancing the coin's outstanding eye appeal. Finally, close scrutiny with a glass reveals that untoned, impeccably preserved surfaces are devoid of mentionable marks. 1870 proof quarters were struck from rusted dies, according to Larry Briggs, and some light evidence of which is visible beneath the eagle's right (left facing) wing. This is a truly Superb coin that is sure to generate spirited bidding.
