Description

    1856 Quarter, Nearly Brilliant MS66
    A High-Grade No Motto Type Coin

    1856 25C MS66 NGC. The mintage of the 1856 quarter of more than 7.2 million pieces explains the relatively large number of survivors today. However, even the 1856 is a condition rarity in MS66. None are finer at either service, and this is one of only six pieces so graded at NGC (7/12). The softly frosted surfaces are almost brilliant, there just being a smidgen of peripheral golden color present on each side. Sharply struck on the obverse, less so on the reverse with roller marks present on the left (facing) leg of the eagle.
    From The Fred Yee Collection.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 23TB, PCGS# 5438)

    Weight: 6.22 grams
