Description:

Impressive AU53 1859-S Quarter
Underrated Condition Rarity
1859-S 25C AU53 PCGS Secure. One die pair, 80,000 pieces, and no Mint State examples in the combined certified population (9/11) -- this is the 1859-S quarter, an important yet underrated rarity from the early days of San Francisco. Larry Briggs wrote in The Comprehensive Encyclopedia of Liberty Seated Quarters, "Most encountered are AG - VG and seem to have a problem of some sort. Coins in F/VF are quite scarce, XF - rare, and AU - extremely rare." As a still-lustrous AU53 example, this is a coin of great importance. Gold-orange and peach patina occupies the centers, while the margins have lavender-to-blue toning that is more prominent on the reverse. Lightly worn and softly struck but with few abrasions of any significance.(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 23TN, PCGS# 5450)
