    1877 Quarter, PR68+ ★ Cameo
    Ex: Newman, Sole Finest Graded

    1877 25C PR68+ ★ Cameo NGC. Briggs 1-B. Ex: Newman. Type Two Reverse. An incredible prize for color enthusiasts, as well as those who simply treasure nicely preserved coins. The reverse shows a generous amount of silver remaining in the center with purplish-blue patina near the rims; the obverse features an amber-gold center with a dollop of rose on Liberty's bosom. A splendid, fully struck proof coin with fantastic eye appeal.

    Variety: Briggs 1-B.

    Population Data (4/15): The ex: Newman Collection coin in PR68+ Cameo is the sole PR68 at either service, regardless of Cameo or any other designations. It is the only NGC coin with either Plus or Star designations; the second-finest at both services are a handful of PR67 submissions in non-Cameo and Cameo

    Heritage Commentary: The 1877 Seated quarter business strikes were made in prodigious numbers, nearly 11 million coins, but many remained in Treasury vaults and likely were melted to strike the Morgan silver dollars introduced the following year. The proof 1877 quarters were made in the modest amount of 880 pieces. Today many of those proofs are impaired, and some prooflike business strikes are confused with proofs.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 23X9, PCGS# 85578)
