    Gem Arrows and Rays 1853 Quarter
    Luminous and Moderately Toned

    1853 25C Arrows and Rays MS65 PCGS. CAC. The small-denomination silver coinage of the United States from half dime to half dollar saw its net silver content reduced in 1853. To mark the event, all affected denominations received arrows flanking the date, and for the first year, the quarter and half dollar had rays placed around their eagle devices. Both sides of this Arrows and Rays Gem are luminous beneath medium-density blue and orange-gold patina, sharply struck with no obvious distractions. For the type or Registry Set collector putting together a high-end toned set, the grade may "only" be MS65, but for the set's purposes, it is perfect. Population: 16 in 65, 8 finer (2/13).
    From The Jim O'Neal Collection.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 23U4, PCGS# 5426)
