Description

Unsurpassable Superb Gem 1876 Seated Quarter

1876 25C MS67 PCGS. This issue's original mintage of 17.8 million pieces is the highest in the entire Seated Quarter series of 1838-1891. Along with the 1853 Arrows and Rays, the 1876 is the most frequently offered date in today's market. Of course, most extant '76-P Quarters grade below the Superb Gem level, and the two major grading services report just ten examples in MS67. There are none finer (6/04). Intensely lustrous with a richly frosted sheen, this coin is bathed in soft champagne-gray patina with delicate sea-green tinting at the denticles. The colors yield to brilliance in the center of the reverse. Both sides are crisply detailed with no abrasions of note, although a loupe will reveal myriad spindly die cracks (as produced) within the peripheral lettering.
