    1868 Seated Liberty Quarter, MS66
    Tied For Finest Certified

    1868 25C MS66 PCGS. CAC. Though it has a lower mintage than its S-mint counterpart (29,400 pieces versus 96,000 pieces), the 1868 quarter is more available in Mint State grades, since virtually all of the San Francisco coins experienced heavy circulation. Still, in grades above Gem, the 1868 proves itself a fantastic rarity, with only three pieces at that level in the combined certified population and none finer (11/09).
    This enticing piece offers surprisingly strong luster beneath moderate aqua, azure, violet, and orange concentric toning. The strike is crisp, and the surfaces are immaculate and semiprooflike. The contrast between the reflective surfaces and frosty devices gives this specimen an unusual cameo appearance. A simply marvelous coin that is destined for an honored place in a top-drawer collection.(Registry values: P3)
