Description & Analysis

Briggs 7-E, the proof die marriage of the 1861 Seated Quarter. An elusive date from the early years of increased proof production at the Philadelphia Mint, the 1861 does not appear to have been well received by the collecting public at the time of issue. Four hundred coins of the original 1,000-piece delivery were melted as unsold, leaving a net mintage of just 600 coins.
