    1873 No Arrows Quarter, PR68 ★ Cameo
    Finest Certified

    1873 25C No Arrows PR68 ★ Cameo NGC. CAC. The Open 3 numeral style came later in the year, superseding the Closed 3 style, therefore the No Arrows silver proofs were of the Closed 3 style, the With Arrows proofs Open 3. Both varieties (of all denominations) are popular type coins; the No Arrows proof quarters were struck to the extent of 600 pieces, the With Arrows 540 coins. The Cameo designation is well-deserved here; Liberty and the eagle are each framed in a circle of silver to light-gold patina, yielding deep amber, purple-violet, and blue hues of these coins at the extreme rims. The strike is complete throughout both sides. NGC has seen two PR68 non-Cameo coins and the present Newman Collection PR68 Cameo, and none are numerically finer in any designation (10/13). Type (and date) collectors will doubtless engage in frenzied bidding.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
