Description:
Splendid 1873 Closed 3 Quarter, MS63
The Finest Certified
1873 25C Closed 3 MS63 NGC. The Philadelphia quarters of 1873 come in three distinct varieties: the 1873 Closed 3, the 1873 Open 3, and the 1873 With Arrows. Of these variants, the last has the highest mintage, with over a million pieces struck, and the 1873 Open 3, though it has a mintage of only 172,000 coins, is one of the most available Motto quarters issues in Mint State. The 1873 Closed 3 version, however, is highly elusive, with a total production of just 40,000 business strikes, and most survivors showing a degree of wear. NGC and PCGS have certified just 20 examples ranging from Very Fine to Mint State.
Though the 1873 Closed 3 remains an underrated issue in most grades, connoisseurs are aware of how elusive the issue is in Mint State condition. NGC and PCGS have certified a mere five Mint State representatives between them, and the MS63 coin offered here is the single finest for either service (10/08). A well executed strike leaves crisp definition on the design elements, and both sides offer strong, shining luster. The obverse displays violet-inflected iridescence, while the reverse is essentially brilliant. A scattering of fine obverse marks precludes a finer designation.
