    1873 Closed 3, No Arrows Quarter
    PR68 Cameo, Spectacular Toning

    1873 25C No Arrows PR68 Cameo PCGS. Briggs 1-A. Ex: Simpson. The Closed 3, No Arrows proof half dollar has a low mintage of 600 pieces. Approximately 400 examples have survived, but very few exhibit toning as dramatic as the present specimen. The fully struck surfaces have cobalt-blue and cherry-red margins. The fields are peach-gold. No detractions are evident. In 1873, the Philadelphia Mint also struck Open 3, No Arrows and Open 3, Arrows quarters, the latter in both proof and business formats. Briggs 1-A is readily attributed by the mint-made die scratch on the eagle's left shield border. The proof reverse die makes its first appearance on this issue, and was used intermittently through 1880. Population: 2 in 68 Cameo, 0 finer (9/20).(Registry values: P3)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23X6, PCGS# 85572)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
