    Pleasing Proof 1873 With Arrows Quarter Dollar

    1873 25C Arrows PR63 PCGS. Gold was discovered in the late 1840s out west, and for the next decade flooded the financial markets with this metal, causing silver to rise in value to the point that the weight of silver coins had to be reduced in 1853. Twenty years later, as massive quantities of silver came into the market from Nevada, the opposite problem developed, and silver declined in value. Thus the weight reduction of 1853 was counteracted with a weight increase in 1873. Once again, this change in weight was signified by tiny little arrowheads near the date. This Select proof moderately reflective fields, subdued by rich heather and pale blue toning.(#5574) (Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 23XR, PCGS# 5574)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
