Description:
Key 1870-CC Quarter, VF20 PCGS
1870-CC 25C VF20 PCGS. Generally considered the rarest date in the Seated quarter series, the 1870-CC has an impressively low mintage of only 8,340 pieces. Counterfeits are known of this issue, the pressure is so great and the economic imperative so compelling. Close examination of this piece reveals that it was most likely struck from standard coin silver and not pure Comstock Lode silver, which means the surfaces are non-porous, as one would expect from coins struck from unannealed silver. Also, there are no mentionable planchet flaws on either side as often seen. There are, however, numerous small to medium sized abrasions from contact with other coins in the channels of commerce. Perhaps the most noticeable of these are a pair of reeding marks in the left obverse field by star 5. Light brilliantish-lilac color overall, there is a bit of pale golden around the margins. Evenly worn over the highpoints. This is a highly collectible example of this important, initial-year Carson City issue.(Registry values: P9) (NGC ID# 23UL, PCGS# 5477)
