    Superbly Toned Cameo Proof 1882 Quarter

    1882 25C PR67 Cameo NGC. With such a limited original mintage (15,200 business strikes and 1,100 proofs), it is little wonder that the Philadelphia mint used only two sets of dies for the 1882 Seated Liberty Quarter. The specimen strikings are distinguishable from prooflike Uncs. by the position of the left base of the 2 in the date over the right edge of a denticle. The reverse die that the mint employed for the proof 1882 is not new--it had been used to deliver the 975 proof Quarters of the previous year. A glorious Superb Gem, the dominant color of the toning on both sides is a rich copper-lilac shade. There are, however, cobalt-blue undertones in evidence at selected border areas. There is not a single ill-defined feature, nor can we find a hairline, contact mark, or any other blemish of note. A solidly graded and conditionally rare Superb Gem. Population: 2 in 67 Cameo, 0 finer (10/04).(#85583) (Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 23XE, PCGS# 85583)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
