1863 Liberty Seated Quarter Dollar. PCGS graded Proof 66. Lovely rainbow toning on the obverse. 460 Proofs minted, a low-mintage Civil War era issue. A fresh and gleaming toned gem whose resonating luster seems poised to detonate like a Fourth of July skyrocket from so much color. In addition to the aforementioned rainbow of hues we find a touch of vibrancy in the iridescence, especially on the obverse. Adequately struck would be a blasphemous statement when confronted by the incredible needle-sharp detail here, a well made Proof which no one could find fault with, offering full details on both sides. Definitely gem. Deserving a strong bid. One of a hand-picked group of high-end pieces consigned to us by a very astute gentleman. The coins speak for themselves! Pop 9; none finer. (PCGS # 5559) .
Estimated Value $7,000 - 7,500.
The Mark Gordon Collection Ex: Benson Collection.

Realized $8,913
