Description:
Superb Gem 1857 Seated Liberty Quarter
Only One Coin Certified Finer at PCGS
1857 25C MS67 NGC. Ex: Joseph Thomas Collection. It is impossible to convey the gorgeous eye appeal of this piece in mere words. Were it not for some slight weakness of definition, this coin would easily make the MS68 grade, based just on its appearance alone. It only takes a second for the viewer to reach the same conclusion that we have--this is a stunning coin that will surely excite even the most jaded collector. Both sides are completely brilliant, and it appears this coin was recently ejected from the coining dies. Bold, swirling, cartwheel luster emanates from each side, even in low light. Close examination of the fields reveals slight clashing and numerous striations resulting from an impression from freshly maintained dies. Simply put, this coin is a real beauty. Census: 20 in 67, 1 finer (7/10).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 23TE, PCGS# 5442)
