In 1864, General Sherman set off from Atlanta on his infamous March to the Sea through Georgia. The march is famous for not only its scorched earth tactics, but also for the fact that it ventured deep into enemy territory without a supply line. This 1864 quarter recalls this devastating yet controversial blow to the Confederate States.
This is a short-lived, two-year proof type the pursuit of which is a task for those with an overabundance of patience and very deep pockets. The proof 1854 and 1855 Arrows Quarters have unknown, although presumably very limited original mintages. It is likely that the combined extant population of both issues is fewer than 30 coins, and survivors appear in the market only once in a very long while.
