1871 Quarter, PR67
1871 25C PR67 NGC. Briggs 1-A. Ex: Kaufman. With smooth
surfaces and gorgeous original toning, it is little wonder that
this coin is one of the finest certified survivors from this proof
delivery. Swirls of reddish-copper color appear toward the upper
right obverse and lower right reverse borders. The balance of the
features are awash in cobalt-blue shades that yield to golden
undertones at direct light angles. Every feature is unsurprisingly
razor-sharp with glistening mint frost.
The Kaufman Collection Example
Variety: Briggs 1-A. The presence of a small die rust lump on the drapery above and to the right of (LIBERT)Y on the scroll confirms the variety.
Population Data (9/15): Only four proofs are certified in this lofty grade at NGC with a single PR68 submission finer. PCGS reports four Premium Gems (one in PR66+) and none finer.
Heritage Commentary: According to Larry Briggs' Comprehensive Encyclopedia of United States Liberty Seated Quarters (1991), a number of extant proof 1871 Seated quarters are impaired to one degree or another. That could not be further from the truth with this unquestionably original, problem-free Superb Gem. From a mintage of 960 proofs.
