    1860-S Quarter, Choice Fine
    Challenging Old West Issue, CAC

    1860-S 25C Fine 15 PCGS. CAC. Briggs 1-A. In many ways, the 1860-S rivals other rare San Francisco Mint quarters in terms of overall rarity. The 1864-S, 1866-S, 1867-S, 1871-S, and 1872-S come to mind. This is an attractive Choice Fine 1860-S, with light, silver-gray surfaces and moderate wear for the assigned grade. Smooth from wear, the fields show no appreciable distractions and low spots in the motifs have gathered bits of deeper toning. The rims weaken only slightly at 10 o'clock of the reverse. CAC endorsement is a meaningful adjunct. Population: 12 in 15, 38 finer. CAC: 3 in 15, 8 finer (3/20).(Registry values: P8)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23TS, PCGS# 5453)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
