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.
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!
Proper detail for the grade with a pleasing steel-gray color. Only 88,000 minted with PCGS and NGC combining to grade fewer than 90 coins in all grades. And this number almost certainly includes coins graded multiple times!
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!
Arrows and Rays. Scarce 1 year type with the New Orleans mint coin being over 10 times rarer than the 'P' mint.
A very scarce early proof with an estimated 40 examples known. Just 6 have graded 65 at NGC with 2 better and none have graded higher at PCGS. This is an exciting coin with very deep reflective proof surfaces and a very precise strike. Delicate golden toning with iridescent shades of blue and rose at the rim is absolutely exquisite! An important rare coin in an outstanding state of preservation!
Well struck with crisp white luster and nicely mirrored surfaces. The devices show considerable white frost suggesting that a 'Cameo' designation may have been appropriate. 1858 was the first year the mint sold proofs to the public so exact mintage figures aren't available. The Redbook states a mintage of 300. CCE shows a 100 coin figure and Breen estimates that just a few dozen survived.
CAC. A light blend of champagne and lavender over virtually flawless surfaces that show nice cameo contrast between the mirrored fields and the frosted design features.
Nice brilliant mirrored surfaces contrast with golden-white frost on the devices to produce a nice cameo. Only 500 of these Civil War era proofs were minted.
A gorgeous blast white Gem with striking contrast between the mirrored fields and the frosted design elements. A scarce date with just 725 proofs and 16,800 business strikes minted.
CAC. Blast white luster with gorgeous cameo producing contrast between the highly reflective fields and the frosted design elements. The strike is razor sharp and the surfaces reveal no significant marks. Only 625 proofs minted.
CAC approved. Nice mirror-frost contrast with a faint golden champagne overlay. Pleasing eye appeal.
A beautiful blast white 'Cameo' from a mintage of just 700.
The 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 approved. Well struck with frosty white luster. An attractive Seated Quarter from the popular Carson City Mint.
CAC. Blast white luster and a solid strike with nice clean surfaces.
Brilliant surfaces with nice frost on the design elements.
A fantastic blast white example of this scarce Seated Quarter. The strike is super sharp with nice contrast between the pristine mirrored fields and the frosted design elements. A coin that we feel merits a cameo designation. Only 1,100 proofs and 13,600 business strikes made.
Beautiful rich iridescent toning with shades of blue, green, dove-gray, and gold. Just 1,100 proofs and 13,600 business strikes produced.
