Description & Analysis

The rarity of the proof 1865 quarter eagle is only overshadowed by the even rarer business strikes of this date. Only 25 proofs were struck in this final year of the Civil War, and today estimates of survivors vary from a low of 8-10 (Akers) to 13 to 15 possibly remaining (Taglione).
