Seated Liberty Quarters using Christian Gobrecht’s design were struck from 1838 to 1891. There were several design modifications to both the obverse and the reverse of Seated Liberty Quarters along the way.
Many scarce and rare date coins can be found in the very popular Seated Liberty Quarter series.
368,000 minted with an apparently low survival rate.
Solid slate gray surfaces. A tough coin in any grade with a mintage of 368,000.
Arrows and Rays. An attractive cream-white example of this one year 'type'. The strike is sharp and the surfaces are minimally abraded.
CAC. Vibrant rainbow toning off beautiful, highly reflective surfaces, gives this coin exceptional eye appeal.
Sharply struck with crisp luster and strong contrast between the deep mirrored fields and frosted design elements.
A better date with a mintage of 80,000.
CAC. A brilliant core with just the barest trace of color at the rim. The devices are modestly frosted and enhance this coins strong eye appeal.
Pleasant gun metal gray surfaces. Tough in any grade with a mintage of only 96,000 versus almost 5 million coins minted in Philadelphia the same year.
Blast white flashy surfaces stand out on this scarce Civil War date. The strike is excellent and the eye appeal is grand. Only 7 grade finer at NGC.
A gorgeous blast white Gem with stunning contrast between the mirrored fields and the frosted design elements. A scarce date with just 725 proofs and 16,800 business strikes minted.
Seldom-seen as a high grade business strike as just 29,400 were minted and the issue seems to have seen heavy circulation. This is a very sharply struck egg-shell white coin with nice semi proof-like surfaces. It is free of significant marks and offers excellent eye appeal.
A lovely Gem with satiny brilliant champagne-white luster and a sharp strike.
CAC. Nice original lustrous surfaces with a dusting of light russet toning. The strike is sharp and an absence of significant marks suggest this coin is very conservatively graded.
The 1877 proof mintage was 510 pieces which is the lowest of any 'with Motto' Seated Quarter. This example has beautiful reflective surfaces that are blast white on the reverse and have a wisp of champagne toning on the obverse.
CAC. Blast white and a very sharp strike. The fields are deeply mirrored and there is strong frost on the devices. In an early holder before NGC used the "cameo" designation.
Rich brilliant champagne-white surfaces and a razor sharp strike. Outstanding for the grade with minimal marks and a strong luster 'cartwheel', leaving no doubt that this is indeed a business strike. Just 13,600 minted with most high grade examples of this date being from the proof mintage which collectors saved.
Beautiful rich iridescent toning with shades of blue, green, dove-gray, and gold. Just 1,100 proofs and 13,600 business strikes produced.
A soft amber glow illuminates nicely mirrored surfaces. Devices display light unnoted cameo and provide attractive contrast.
Blast white on the obverse with a light pinkish-blue patina on the reverse. Beautiful contrast exists between the deep mirrored fields and the very frosty devices. A scarce date with just 875 proofs and 8,000 business strikes minted.
A beautiful Gem "Cameo" with frosted devices and richly toned mirror surfaces showing rich shades of gold. Only 930 proofs and 13,600 business strikes minted.
