Description

Very Rare AU53 1861-S Quarter

1861-S 25C AU53 NGC. Briggs 2-B. Later Die State. A heavy die chip joins the upper left side of the mintmark to the arrow feather and distinguishes this coin from earlier die states. Even though 96,000 pieces were produced of this issue, it is seldom found in any grade, and when located tends to be no better than VF. Even XF coins are very scarce and no Uncirculated pieces are known today. This example is lightly and evenly toned with gray-lilac and rose coloration. Well struck throughout, the only surface defect that could be used to trace the pedigree of this important coin is a tiny mark in the right obverse field by star 11. (NGC ID# 23TU, PCGS# 5455)
