    Gorgeous 1866 Motto Quarter, MS66

    1866 25C Motto MS66 NGC. CAC. After a tentative beginning with the two cent piece in 1864, the motto IN GOD WE TRUST was added to the copper-nickel five cent piece in 1865 and to the larger-diameter silver and gold coins in 1866. Though a single proof quarter is known without the motto, each circulation-strike representative for the year bears IN GOD WE TRUST on a ribbon that arcs above the eagle's head.
    Of the survivors from this issue of just 16,800 pieces, few are so spectacularly preserved as this amazing Premium Gem, and it is difficult to imagine an equal in eye appeal. Dappled green-gold, turquoise, and rose-orange patina graces the obverse, while the reverse offers similar toning with a touch of emerald at the margins. A trifle softly struck at the right stars, but otherwise solidly impressed with excellent luster and wonderful surface quality. NGC has graded only one numerically finer representative (11/07).(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 23UB, PCGS# 5468)
