    1855-O Arrows Quarter, Sharp MS63
    Extremely Rare in Any Mint State Grade

    1855-O 25C Arrows MS63 NGC. Briggs 1-A. Medium golden-rose patina graces each side of this Select 1855-O Arrows quarter, complementing generous luster and a sharp strike. An extreme rarity in any Mint State grade.

    Variety: Briggs 1-A. The mintmark is slightly closer than on Reverse B, and a well-developed die crack runs from the dentils upward between Q and U to the eagle's leftmost talon.

    Population Data (9/15): NGC reports three MS63, two MS64, and one MS67. The only Mint State examples at PCGS are one MS63 and two MS64.

    Heritage Commentary: The MS67 NGC-CAC example of this issue mentioned above was also Gene Gardner's (and ex: Eliasberg), sold in our Gardner Part III Signature as lot 98343 (Heritage, 5/2015), where it realized $82,250. But even in the more-modest MS63 grade of the present piece, this is an issue that simply does not trade frequently: This is the first offering of this MS63, or any MS63 example, since the Richmond Collection auction in 2005.

    Provenance: Richmond Collection (David Lawrence, 3/2005), lot 1436.(Registry values: P8)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23U9, PCGS# 5436)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
