Sumptuous Select 1875-CC Quarter

1875-CC 25C MS63 PCGS. Despite a seemingly sizable mintage of 140,000 pieces, the 1875-CC quarter rarely crosses the auction block in any grade. This lack of appearances, combined with a misperception of its scarcity and value, makes it a highly underrated issue in the Seated series. Many pricing guides have been slow to acknowledge gains in price made in the last few years; the 2008 Guide Book, for example, lists a Select example at just $2,500, a value that seems absurdly low in the context of a recent five-figure result.
In his The Mint on Carson Street, Rusty Goe declares that "[p]roperly graded specimens in Fine to MS-63 are most desirable." The lovely exemplar offered here appears at the high end of that scale. Pink and gold accents grace otherwise silver-white surfaces that show whispers of highpoint frost and subtle, satiny luster. Well struck with light, scattered flaws in the fields that preclude a finer designation. Population: 4 in 63, 8 finer (11/07).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 23UY, PCGS# 5499)
