Description:
Superb Gem 1886 Seated Quarter
None Certified Finer
1886 25C MS67 PCGS. Only 5,000 business-strike Seated Liberty quarters were struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1886, accompanied by a small mintage of 886 proofs. The 1886 is the rarest date of the series in circulated grades, and Mint State survivors are often mistaken for proofs because of their prooflike surfaces. The coin offered here exhibits prooflike reflectivity in the fields, but the stars show strong centrils and the reverse shows the effects of lapping, both diagnostics of a regular-issue coin. Superb Gem survivors are extremely rare.
The present coin is a sharply struck Superb Gem, but die polishing has resulted in a lack of detail in some areas. Liberty's neckline and the rock above the date show a little softness, while the eagle's tail below the shield is faint. Attractive greenish-gray and violet toning enhances the pristine fields. Population: 2 in 67, 0 finer (3/11).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 23VJ, PCGS# 5518)
