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.
No Drapery. Lustrous nearly mint state surfaces that exhibits an obverse with gold tinted silver shade and a mostly peripheral touch of violet-blue. The reverse exhibits a steel-blue shade. A sharp strike and a low mintage of 382,200.
Drapery. Lustrous rich olive-gray shaded surfaces and a sharp strike. A scarce date with only 43,000 minted and just 6 graded finer at NGC.
Solid detail with pleasing light silver-gray surfaces.
368,000 minted with an apparently low survival rate.
Sharply struck with flashy luster that is mostly white with a streak of light golden toning on the obverse. A better date that is particularly tough in mint state. Only 3 coins have graded finer at PCGS.
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. Huge O. Steel gray surfaces with a strong mint mark and date. The mint mark was apparently added by hand at the mint and is both large and poorly shaped. Scarce and very distinctive.
Huge O. The mint-mark was added by hand and is large and poorly shaped. A scarce coin in any grade.
CAC. Huge O. A scarce and distinctive variety as the 'O' mintmark was apparently added by hand and is both large and poorly shaped. Unknown in mint state and seldom-seen in any grade.
Well detailed light gray surfaces and a touch of gold along the periphery. A mintage of 286,000 and a challenge to locate in any grade.
Large S/Small S.
Well detailed with pleasant battleship gray surfaces. A scarce date with only 80,000 minted and unknown in uncirculated condition.
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.
Fine Detail-Environmental Damage.
Blast white semi proof-like surfaces are flashy and really stand out on this scarce Civil War date. The strike is excellent and the eye appeal is fantastic. Only 7 grade finer at NGC.
Just 41,000 minted with a very low survival rate. This is a pleasing example with light gray surfaces and strong detail for the grade.
