Description

1871 Seated Liberty Quarter, PR66
Ex: Mehl/Neil

1871 25C PR66 PCGS. This lovely 1871 Seated quarter has a provenance extending back to legendary Fort Worth, Texas, coin dealer B. Max Mehl. Although many modern-day numismatists, particularly younger ones, may not realize it, Mehl was instrumental in creating public awareness of numismatic rarities such as the 1913 Liberty nickel. His influence cannot be overstated in terms of the number of coin collectors involved in the hobby today.
The present coin was described in lot 950 of the Will W. Neil Collection (B. Max Mehl, 6/1947), "1871 Perfect brilliant iridescent proof. Beautiful brilliant surface. Catalogs $6.50." The coin's spectacular blue and lavender toning may be even deeper and more beautiful today, but Mehl's superlative description still applies. Currently, PCGS has certified only six coins in PR66, with none finer (6/10).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 23X4, PCGS# 5570)
