1877 Quarter, PR67 Cameo
1877 25C PR67 Cameo PCGS. Briggs 1-B. Ex: Simpson. Die crack
through the arrowheads. The 1877 is widely available in
circulation-strike format, with a massive production of 10.9
million coins. However, only 510 proofs were struck, a handful of
which survive in this spectacular PR67 Cameo condition. The obverse
offers a blend of cobalt-blue, golden-orange, sea-green, yellow,
and rose patina, while the reverse is somewhat more orderly.
Orange-gold centers turn to violet and magenta and then to deep
ocean-blue at the rims. The centers are just light enough to
produce Cameo contrast against the flashy fields. Population: 4 in
67 (1 in 67+) Cameo, 0 finer (4/20).
Beautiful Array of Colors
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23X9, PCGS# 85578)
