Splendid Mid-Grade 1870-CC Quarter Rarity

1870-CC 25C VF 30 PCGS. A Choice VF example of this famous rarity, with ivory-gray fields and more deeply colored, silver-gray devices. A few scattered abrasions are present, but none are individually distracting or inconsistent with the grade. Many CC-mint coins from the 1870s are plagued by porosity, as the Carson City Mint's employees were known to short cut the annealing process and use pure silver ore as it came from the mines (instead of the proper 90% silver, 10% copper alloy). This planchet is problem-free and adds to the coin's overall aesthetic appeal. The 1870-CC has always been considered the rarest issue in the Seated Liberty quarter series, and it is the premier quarter issue from the historic Carson City Mint. This pleasing coin should excite many specialists and potential bidders, and would highlight any collection of Seated Liberty quarters. (NGC ID# 23UL, PCGS# 5477)
