    1853 Arrows and Rays Quarter, MS64
    Sought-After One-Year Type Coin

    1853 25C Arrows and Rays MS64 PCGS. The lack of circulating silver coinage due to the huge influxes of California gold was resolved by the lower-weight Arrows and Rays coins, but nearly all of the quarters circulated. In general, the larger-denomination an Arrows (and sometimes Rays) silver coin is, the more likely it is to have circulated. The certified populations for the 1853 Arrows and Rays quarters include a handful of MS67 pieces, but those populations thin out drastically at or above the Gem grade level, making an MS64 coin an optimal grade for collectors. This is an oyster-gray example that is sharply struck in all areas. No obvious marks are seen on either side.
    From The Wildwood Collection. (Registry values: P5) (PCGS# 5426)
