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. Pleasing steel-gray surfaces.
Small obverse ding.
A much tougher date than the mintage of 368,000 coins might lead you to believe. Only 4 coins have graded mint state at PCGS and they've graded less than 100 coins in all grades!
This is a rare coin in any grade with just over 60 coins graded at PCGS and that includes 'crack-outs', so the actual number of unique '52- O quarters to pass thru PCGS is probably closer to 50. Of those, only 17 have graded higher than this lovely example. This choice VF has close to XF detail and attractive light silver-gray surfaces. An exciting coin for the advanced collector of this popular series!
A pleasing example of this one year 'Arrows and Rays' type.
Arrows and Rays. Scarce 1 year type with the New Orleans mint coin being over 10 times rarer than the 'P' mint.
