Description

    1881 Quarter, PR67 Ultra Cameo
    Extremely Rare So Boldly Contrasted

    1881 25C PR67 Ultra Cameo NGC. Briggs 2-B. This Superb Gem Ultra Cameo proof displays absolutely stunning visual quality: The deeply mirrored fields are seemingly jet-black, and the beautifully frosted devices offer magnificent contrast on both sides. The surfaces are essentially pristine with a minor toning spot near the U in QUAR. that will identify this coin in subsequent auction appearances.

    Variety: Briggs 2-B. A single die pair was used to strike proofs, showing die scratches in the upper loop of the first 8 in 1881. Both 8s show repunching.

    Population Data (9/15): There are four PR67 Ultra Cameo grading events at NGC with none finer. A single PR68 Deep Cameo is finer at PCGS.

    Heritage Commentary: The Mint produced a sizeable mintage of 975 proof quarters in 1881, but only a small handful of examples display sufficient white-on-black contrast to merit an Ultra Cameo designation. Remarkably, just four submissions out of the 294 at NGC (1.4%) have been awarded such a designation.

    Provenance: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2007), lot 2990; National Money Show Signature (Heritage, 5/2007), lot 677; Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 5/2007), lot 900.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 23XD, PCGS# 95582)
