    1873 No Arrows Quarter, PR68 Cameo
    Ex: Newman, None Finer

    1873 25C No Arrows PR68 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Briggs 1-A. Ex: Newman-Simpson. The Open 3 numeral style came later in the year, superseding the Closed 3 style, therefore the No Arrows silver proofs were of the Closed 3 style, the With Arrows proofs Open 3. Both varieties (of all denominations) are popular type coins. The No Arrows proof quarters were struck to the extent of 600 pieces, the With Arrows 540 coins.

    The Cameo designation is well-deserved here. Liberty and the eagle are each framed in a circle of silver to light-gold patina, with deep amber, purple-violet, and blue hues around the rims. The strike is complete throughout both sides. Type (and date) collectors will doubtless engage in frenzied bidding for this unimprovable and impeccably pedigreed quarter. Population: 2 in 68 Cameo, 0 finer. CAC: 2 in 68, 0 finer (11/20).
