||1868 25C Quarter Dollar, Judd-650, Pollock-723, Low R.7, PR63 Cameo NGC. CAC. An off-metal strike in aluminum with a reeded edge from the regular-issue Seated quarter dies of 1868. The 16 members of this complete aluminum proof set, from Indian cent through double eagle, each show combined certified populations at NGC and PCGS that are fairly consistent in number. This attractive Seated quarter pattern shows considerable contrast between the fields and devices, even if insufficient for a Cameo designation. NGC shows one each in PR63 and PR63 Cameo; PCGS reports two finer -- one each in PR64 and PR65 (8/14). Part of a complete 16-piece aluminum proof set. Ex: Treasury Secretary Hugh McCulloch (circa 1868); McCulloch family; Eric Newman; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
