***Auction Highlight*** 1873 Arrows @ date Seated Liberty Quarter 25c Graded pr66+ cam By SEGS. 0 Up for Auction is a Spectacular and immaculate PR66+ Cameo 1873 With Arrows Seated Liberty Quarter Proof. The 1873 No Arrows quarters proofs were of the Closed 3 style, but the Arrows design, coming later in the year, also showed the updated Open 3 style with the 3 less resembling a final 8. The year 1873 was probably that which saw the most sweeping changes ever in U.S. coinage, called by many the "Crime of '73." The new regime included elimination of the two cent, silver half dime and trime, and Seated dollar denominations, introduction of the Trade dollar, and the slight weight increase of all remaining silver coinage denominations under a dollar to even metric weights -- a stupid disproportionality that ensured the new Trade dollars would not circulate domestically, being overvalued by almost 9% compared to two silver half dollars.Walter Breen's Proof Encyclopedia numbers the proof mintage of the Arrows quarters at 540 pieces -- 500 for the silver proof sets, with 40 extra coins struck later in the year for unspecified reasons.The present example in the grade of PR66+ Cameo is tied for 5th finest known. This piece is essentially immaculate, free of any visible post-Mint contact marks and showing surfaces that are fully struck throughout both sides. Original patina transitions from deep dark gold on the rims through light almost transparent gold in the centers, and ample mint frost ensures contrast with the reflective fields. The coin does have some fogginess at certain angles, but then at others, POW a dramatic cameo pops. A truly original and near pristine example.
