    1872 Quarter, PR67 Cameo
    High-Grade Circulation Strike Alternative

    1872 25C PR67 Cameo NGC. CAC. Briggs 3-C. Rotation under a light source reveals mottled blue, purple, and russet patina on both sides. Abundant reflectivity in the fields and a layer of frost over the devices generate the bold Cameo-designated contrast. A standout representative destined for a set of equally high quality.

    Variety: Briggs 3-C. Star 5 has a large notch on the lower star point, and the reverse has a prominent die cut through the left shield border. This is the first use of this reverse die, which was subsequently used to strike proofs for eight years until it was retired in 1880.

    Population Data (9/15): There are five PR67 Cameo grading events at NGC (one in PR67 Cameo) with a single PR68 Cameo submission finer.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1872 has a mintage of 182,000 circulation strikes, but a significant number were probably melted following the passage of the Mint Act of 1873, according to Larry Briggs (1991). Examples are more challenging to find in high grades than the production total suggests, making high-end proofs like this excellent alternatives for collectors looking to assemble a top-notch date set.

    Provenance: Purchased from Pinnacle Rarities (11/2006).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 23X5, PCGS# 85571)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
