    1882 Seated Quarter, PR67
    None Finer at PCGS

    1882 25C PR67 PCGS. CAC. Briggs 2-B. The deeply reflective fields sparkle under a moderate coating of natural cobalt-blue toning. The obverse is somewhat lighter with magenta coloration primarily at the central portion. All design features are fully struck (as expected), and the surfaces are nearly pristine overall. A few marks on the PCGS holder should not be confused with surface problems. An appealing Superb Gem proof, carefully preserved with excellent eye appeal.

    Variety: Briggs 2-B. The positioning of the the left edge of the 2 over the right edge of a dentil confirms this coin's proof status.

    Population Data (9/15): This is one of 11 PR67 examples at PCGS with none finer. NGC shows 16 in PR67 (one PR67 ★ , two PR67+ ★ ) but none numerically finer.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1882 is a low total-mintage date with 15,200 circulation strikes and 1,100 proofs. In terms of availability, the proofs are readily accessible through Gem condition but become more elusive than their business strike counterparts at the Premium Gem level and higher.

    Provenance: Pittsburgh Signature (Heritage, 8/2004), lot 4066.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 23XE, PCGS# 5583)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
