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.
Small Date. The rarest New Orleans mint quarter with an estimated 200 to 250 known. This well worn example is problem-free and still very attractive.
Small Date. The rarest New Orleans mint quarter with estimated 200 to 250 known. This is a pleasing example with solid detail and nice gray surfaces with gold and lime tints.
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.
CAC. Scarce in any grade partly due to a modest mintage of 88,000 coins, but primarily due to the melting of silver coinage after the weights were reduced on dimes, quarters and halves in 1853.
Arrows and Rays. An attractive cream-white example of this one year 'type'. The strike is sharp and the surfaces are minimally abraded.
Just 82,000 minted with relatively few survivors as this issue saw heavy circulation. This example has solid detail and pleasing surfaces.
Flashy white surfaces with modest frost on the design. A pleasing example of this early proof which saw a production of 800 coins.
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.
Very attractive with solid detail and pleasing dove-gray surfaces. A modest 80,000 minted and an issue that saw heavy circulation. Few have survived and none have graded mint state at either service.
CAC. A brilliant core with attractive brush 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.
Attractive and mostly white with a touch of mainly peripheral toning. A Civil War year with a mintage of just 550.
Blast white flashy surfaces stand out on this scarce Civil War date. The strike is excellent and the eye appeal is fantastic. Only 7 grade finer at NGC.
Motto. 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.
An issue that saw heavy circulation. Just 96,000 minted with a very low survival rate.
Arrows. Flashy white luster with semi reflective fields and a touch of attractive toning at the borders. Devoid of significant marks and sharply struck with light die clashing on both sides. Amazing quality and tied for the finest graded at PCGS.
A lovely Gem with satiny brilliant champagne-white luster and a sharp strike.
