Description:
Magnificent 1861 Seated Liberty Quarter, MS67
1861 25C MS67 PCGS. The 1861 Seated Liberty quarter has a mintage of close to 5 million pieces, as it preceded the suspension of specie payments. Philadelphia production declined annually thereafter until 1866, when a scant emission of 16,800 pieces was achieved. This specimen features the Type Two obverse, characterized by a small pair of vertical lines above the E in LIBERTY, and the Type Two reverse, showing the eagle with a convex eye and open claws.
The coin offered here is a remarkable Superb Gem of this collectible Civil War issue. A whisper of tan toning is seen at the margins of this refreshingly unabraded and fully lustrous fields. The strike is needle-sharp, even on such trouble spots as the eagle's legs and Liberty's hair. The left-side obverse denticles are incomplete, as some sloping toward the field is present. NGC has graded three coins at the Superb Gem level, with none finer, while PCGS has graded six examples in MS67, with none finer (3/09).
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 23TT, PCGS# 5454)
