1887 Quarter, Vibrantly Toned PR67
1887 25C PR67 NGC. Briggs 2-B. Sea-green, ice-blue, violet,
and orange tones seamlessly merge from the rims to the central
obverse, while the reverse displays purple patina in the fields
with an overlay of electric-blue iridescence on the devices. An
essentially unmarked, visually delightful Superb Gem.
Popular Low-Mintage Issue
Variety: Briggs 2-B. The proof dies show the date positioned slightly lower, slanting downward from left to right. A die lump occurs along the lower left edge of the shield on the reverse.
Population Data (9/15): NGC reports 10 grading events in PR67 and two in PR68. The finest at PCGS are four in PR67.
Heritage Commentary: The allure of a low total-mintage issue such as this (10,000 circulation strikes, 710 proofs) is undeniable, yet enough examples survive in both formats to satisfy demand through Premium Gem condition. The issue only becomes elusive in this high grade, where proofs outnumber business strikes by a small margin at the leading grading services.

Weight: 6.25 grams
