    1876 Seated Quarter, PR68 ★
    Tied for Numeric Finest, NGC Plate Coin

    1876 25C PR68 ★ NGC. CAC. Briggs 9-J. Ex: Eric P. Newman Collection. Deep purplish-blue rim toning encloses a ring of amber-gold in the centers on each side of this fully struck Superb Gem proof. Some numismatists would argue for a Cameo designation, and there is certainly perceptible contrast. The untroubled surfaces and top-notch eye appeal of this CAC-approved example will entice even the most discriminating buyers. This piece is the plate coin used at NGC's Coin Explorer website for the 1866 issue.

    Variety: Briggs 9-J. There is a reverse die lump beneath the left base of L in DOL, and a patch of roughness in the shield between the second and third pair of vertical stripes. In total, there are three varieties for 1876 proof quarters.

    Population Data (4/15): This piece is tied for the numerically finest known and has an edge over the other PR68 NGC example because of the coveted Star designation, awarded for outstanding eye appeal. The finest at PCGS is a sole PR67.

    Heritage Commentary: Anticipating a large demand for proof sets in 1876, because of the Centennial date, a generous mintage of 1,150 Seated Liberty quarters was executed. The commemorative importance of the date makes this proof Seated quarter as popular now as it was in 1876. But there is no other example comparable to the Newman Collection example.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 3TWJ, PCGS# 5577)
