Description

    1860 Seated Liberty Quarter, MS66
    Only One Example Certified Finer

    1860 25C MS66 PCGS. CAC. Type Two Obverse, Type One Reverse. From a business strike mintage of 804,400 pieces, the 1860 Seated Liberty quarter is one of the more available No Motto dates. Most examples seen are in lower circulated grades, with Fine/VF coins predominating. Larry Briggs gives Mint State coins an R.4 rating, and examples at the Premium Gem level are extremely rare. Currently NGC has certified only two coins in MS66, with one finer; while PCGS has graded two examples at the Premium Gem level, with none finer (11/09).
    The present coin is a lovely Premium Gem with delightful iridescent toning. The surfaces are covered with thick gray patina, yielding to cobalt-blue and russet at the margins. The striking details are stronger on the left, with the right obverse stars missing centrils. One small handling mark is noted, in the right obverse field. Overall eye appeal is outstanding.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 23TP, PCGS# 5451)
