    Finest Certified 1873 Arrows Quarter PR68

    1873 25C Arrows PR68 NGC. The fields are deeply reflective and the obverse possesses a warm russet and cobalt-blue edging around that side with elliptical area of brilliance over most of the portrait and a portion of the date. The reverse, on the other hand, displays an even steel-blue patina that yields to coppery-gold color about the periphery. The Mint Act of 1873 converted subsidiary coinage to the metric system, and in so doing slightly increased the weight of silver planchets. The arrows were a distinguishing mark to easily identify these coins from the old tenor silver pieces. Only 540 pieces were struck in the proof format, this being the single finest specimen certified by the two major services. Census: 1 in 68, 0 finer (11/05).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 23XR, PCGS# 5574)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
