    1853 Seated Liberty Quarter, MS65
    Popular Arrows and Rays Design

    1853 25C Arrows and Rays MS65 PCGS. The weights of all U.S. silver coinage except the three cent silver piece and silver dollar were adjusted in 1853 to bring the intrinsic value of the coins in line with their face value. This weight change was indicated on the quarter by adding arrows at the date and a glory of rays on the reverse. The rays were dropped the following year due to striking problems, creating an immensely popular one-year subtype.

    This impressive Gem exhibits sharply detailed design elements and vibrant mint luster throughout. The well-preserved surfaces show attractive highlights of greenish-gold and lavender toning. Population: 15 in 65, 10 finer (1/15).(Registry values: P5)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23U4, PCGS# 5426)

    Weight: 6.22 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
