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.
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.
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!
A better date with a mintage of 260,000.
