Description & Analysis

With sales of 600 proof quarter dollars in 1868, this issue is once again more available than Mint State currency strikings. Gems are elusive, as are examples certified as Cameo proofs.

Typical of the period, just a single pair of dies has been identified for proofs. The obverse displays tripling of numeral 1 on early strikings and faint repunching of the second 8, as well.
