    Description

    1884 Quarter, PR67
    Only 8,875 Coins Struck in All

    1884 25C PR67 NGC. Briggs 2-B. This carefully preserved, moderately toned Superb Gem proof displays wonderfully original surfaces, both sides sporting a coating of multicolored iridescence that is noticeably deeper on the reverse. Shades include violet, russet, and silver-gray on the obverse and purple, blue, and rose on the other side.

    Variety: Briggs 2-B. The left base of the 1 is centered over the dentil as opposed to over the space between dentils, as seen on circulation strikes.

    Population Data (9/15): The NGC Census records 17 examples in PR67, while the PCGS Population Report shows seven Superb Gem proofs. There are two finer submissions at each service.

    Heritage Commentary: A paltry total of 8,875 quarters was struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1884, with the final three digits representing the proof output. The proof issue only begins to pose a challenge in Superb Gem condition, though collectors will have difficulty locating a higher-graded example. A perfect type candidate.

    Provenance: Denver Signature (Heritage, 8/2006), lot 1186.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 3TWH, PCGS# 5585)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
