|Here is a spectacular 1860 Proof Seated Liberty Quarter which has been graded PR66CAM by PCGS. A TrueView photo was taken by PCGS which captures the beauty of this coin in the best light. With a mintage of only 1000 coins, this coin is scarce in any condition, but it is particularly difficult to find one of the best of the best from that low mintage. This coin is one of only two (2) coins which have graded PR66CAM at PCGS with a lone PR67CAM specimen grading higher; there are also no examples which have received the DCAM designation at PCGS. In other words, this coin is among the very best examples of the 1860 Proof Seated Quarter that has survived. The obverse has very strong and deep mirrored proof fields with very frosty devices. A small planchet defect in the fields just off of Liberty’s leg in the right field and a small lint strikethrough in the space between Liberty’s head and the cap are the only potential issues of note. The reverse is lightly toned in a faint golden color which has the effect of making the mirrored fields appear slightly less deep on that side, but the eagle is boldly struck, very frosty and free of any distracting issues. An overall amazing ultra high grade survivor and impressive representative of the type.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of the coin towards the bottom of this listing in an attempt to give you a better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin in maximum detail.
