    1860 Quarter, Beautifully Toned PR67
    Exceptional Preservation

    1860 25C PR67★ NGC. In 1860, the Mint struck a round 1,000 proofs for the quarter issue, a figure that would remain tied for the highest such mintage for the denomination until 1876. Yet examples remain elusive in the numismatic marketplace today, particularly with strong eye appeal. Likely, a number of them went unsold and were melted.

    The magnificent specimen offered here has not merely survived for a century and a half. Its magnificent preservation bespeaks careful custodianship, and the coin's bold definition and vibrant patina combine for amazing eye appeal. Bands of rose, green-gold, aqua, violet, mustard-gold, magenta, and sky-blue grace the obverse, while the reverse has an outer band of sapphire that surrounds a rose-violet center. A small depression to the left of Liberty's shield arm may assist with future identification. Census: 1 in 67 (1 in 67 ), 1 finer (11/19).
