    1873 No Arrows Quarter, PR67
    Remarkable Visual Appeal

    1873 25C No Arrows PR67 NGC. CAC. Briggs 1-A. Dark smoky-blue patina appears throughout, contrasting against centers that show lighter rose-gold hues. The dentils display faint yellow-gold color. The fields show excellent preservation with minimal signs of contact and only a few minor wispy marks on Liberty's arm and breasts. The eye appeal is outstanding.

    Variety: Briggs 1-A. Closed 3. On the reverse, a small scratch extends from the left side of the shield border into the eagle's feathers.

    Population Data (7/14): Four coins have been certified in PR67 (three at NGC, one at PCGS) with only two finer, both in NGC holders.

    Heritage Commentary: In 1873, only 40,000 business strike quarters were produced with the Closed 3 as compared to 172,000 minted with an Open 3, putting significant pressure on the 600 proofs. The date change was made following complaints that the Closed 3 too closely resembled an 8. Briggs (1991) notes that 1873 No Arrows proofs are readily available in circulated grades from large-scale release into circulation. This does not apply, however, to extremely rare Premium Gems such as the coin offered here.

    Provenance: Palm Beach Signature (Heritage, 3/2006), lot 599.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 23X6, PCGS# 5572)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
