    1874 Arrows Quarter, PR66 Cameo
    Brief Two-Year Type, Rare in This Lofty Grade

    1874 25C Arrows PR66 Cameo PCGS. CAC. This type, the third Arrows-at-Date variety in the Seated quarter series (after the 1853 Arrows and Rays type, and the 1854-55 Arrows without Rays variety), was only produced in 1873 and 1874. Of the two proof issues that resulted, this one had the higher mintage of 700 coins, compared to 540 pieces struck in 1873. The 1873 Arrows proofs are almost twice as scarce as their 1874 counterpart at all grade levels, regardless of Cameo or non-Cameo status, making the 1874 issue a much better choice for type purposes.

    This impressive example is sharply struck and essentially untoned, with clean surfaces that reveal few imperfections and display noteworthy cameo contrast on both sides. A Mint-made, shallow depression is noted beneath the second S in STATES on the upper reverse. An attractive and conditionally scarce representative of this brief two-year type. Population: 9 in 66 Cameo, 0 finer (6/14).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 23XS, PCGS# 85575)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
