    1853/4 Arrows and Rays Quarter, MS64
    Condition Census Example

    1853/4 25C Arrows and Rays MS64 PCGS. This enigmatic overdate shows a mistaken final-digit punch from the next year rather than the previous year. The die state of the present coin shows the upper portion of the 4 within the top of the 3 and also plainly displays the repunching above the right arrow shaft. Only 24 pieces have been certified in Mint condition by both of the major grading services combined. At the MS64 level, this coin is tied with just four others at PCGS with a single Gem finer (4/17). This is a lovely coin that has the usual strong mint luster one would expect on an 1853 quarter. The lustrous finish serves to backlight gray-olive surfaces that have a strong contrast of charcoal-gray over the devices. Sharply struck and seemingly defect-free.
