Description

    1871 Seated Quarter, PR68
    The Sole Finest Certified
    From the Gardner Collection

    1871 25C PR68 NGC. Briggs 1-A, the proof die pair. Breen's Proof Encyclopedia recognizes two varieties, one with an earlier date logotype where the 71 nearly touch, another where the 71 are apart. The present offering is of the latter variety, which Breen contends makes up the majority of proofs. Because many of the 118,200 business strikes were probably destroyed in the 1873 silver melt, demand is high among date collectors for high-grade proofs.

    Splashes of soft cobalt-blue, lavender, and russet cascade over both sides of this gorgeous Superb Gem proof, and the design elements are boldly defined. Close inspection reveals impeccably cared-for surfaces, further enhancing the coin's overall eye appeal. Certified in a prior generation holder.
