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.
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.
A scarce date that must have seen heavy circulation. 121,000 minted with few survivors that are mostly well worn. A single mint state coin has graded at PCGS.
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.
Attractive and mostly white with a touch of mainly peripheral toning. A Civil War year with a mintage of just 550.
Strong detail with light silver-gray surfaces. Scarce in all grades.
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.
CAC. A stunning blast white Gem with nearly flawless surfaces and heavy frost on the design. Outstanding for the grade with wonderful eye appeal.
Arrows. A pleasing example of this short-lived sub-type. The strike is sharp and the surfaces are coated with champagne-white luster.
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.
Well struck and lustrous with lavender and orange-gold toning.
