Description

    1872 Quarter, Rim-Toned PR68
    Tied for Finest Certified

    1872 25C PR68 NGC. Briggs 3-C. Russet, violet, and deep-blue rim toning encircles mostly brilliant silver-white centers on this splendid Superb Gem proof. Although this piece lacks the NGC Cameo designation, considerable contrast appears on both sides, giving the impression that the central devices are floating above the surfaces.

    Variety: Briggs 3-C. Die rust appearing as fine raised dots covers the portrait of Liberty. Star 5 shows a cut out of the lower inside star point. A raised die line pierces the left shield border slightly below the horizontal stripes.

    Population Data (5/14): NGC shows two non-Cameo submissions in PR68 as finest, and there is one PR68 Cameo. The finest at PCGS is a single PR67.

    Heritage Commentary: The PR68 level for Seated quarters is about as fine as most collectors can realistically aspire to, as examples in PR69 seldom appear at auction. The 1872 date shows three in PR68 including a Cameo piece, making it a prime candidate for a fine type set.

    The reverse of this 1872 quarter displays a raised die line more 1 mm long crossing the left shield border, identifying this as a proof die. The same reverse was employed on Seated quarter proofs from 1873 through 1880.

    Provenance: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2008), lot 1878.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 3TWH, PCGS# 5571)

    Weight: 6.22 grams
