1873 Arrows Quarter, PR66
1873 25C Arrows PR66 PCGS. Briggs 5-D. Ex: Simpson. This
proof 1873 Seated quarter represents the well-known Arrows design,
a two-year subtype introduced to signify an otherwise indiscernible
weight increase from 6.22 grams to 6.25 grams. Only 500 proof 1873
Arrows quarters were struck, and they are perennially popular with
collectors. This is an inimitable Premium Gem with absolutely
original dusky lavender toning that reveals spectacular rainbow
iridescence when turned under a light source. Golden-orange centers
blend with magenta, violet, blue, and green in that order toward
the rims. Population: 6 in 66 (1 in 66+), 1 finer in this category
Magnificent Proof Type Coin
