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. A short-lived type that was only made in Philadelphia in 1838 and 1839 and produced in New Orleans in 1840. Mint state coins are quite scarce with coins above the 64 level being legitimately rare. This is an exciting example with a sharp strike and beautiful crisp cream-white luster. The surfaces are devoid of distracting marks and the eye appeal is excellent.
Sharp detail with lustrous white surfaces. The reverse is mint state while the obverse has just a touch of 'rub'. Popular 'Arrows & Rays' type plus from the New Orleans mint. Scarce in high grade with 5 grading AU-58 and just 11 coins grading higher.
Strong detail and lustrous with light lavender toning. 82,000 minted with a low survival rate as this is a scarce coin in any grade. Particularly elusive in high grade as PCGS has only graded 7 coins mint state.
Well detailed with nice light silver-gray surfaces. 121,000 minted but a date that seems much scarcer than the mintage figure might suggest.
A pleasing early brilliant proof with needle-sharp detail and a healthy amount of cameo producing frost on the design.
A sharp strike with frosted devices and a light golden hue. A popular Civil War date with a proof mintage of just 460 coins.
A scarce Civil War date with a mintage of just 20,000. This example is well detailed with pleasing battleship gray surfaces.
A better date with a modest mintage of 58,800 and popular as a Civil War issue. Mint state coins are scarce with PCGS grading less than 25 pieces in all grades. This example has crisp white luster and a very sharp strike. There are very few marks and the eye appeal is excellent.
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.
A beautiful brilliant proof with heavily frosted design elements offering a stunning contrast to the deep mirrored fields.
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.
Very scarce as a business strike with a mintage of just 20,000. Most the quarters of this date that we see are proofs, which collectors saved. This is a pleasing example with nearly XF detail.
CAC. A very conservatively grade coin with blast white luster and no noteworthy distractions on either side. Heavy frost on the design features produce a nice cameo contrast against the deep mirrored fields. Only 600 proofs and 16,000 business strikes minted.
CAC. Sharp strike and nice frosty white luster with a strong cameo.
Arrows. Crisp white luster and a sharp strike with nice clean surfaces. A pleasing example of this two year subtype.
