    1873 Arrows Quarter, PR66
    Magnificent Proof Type Coin

    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 (4/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23XR, PCGS# 5574)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
