    1871-CC Seated Liberty Quarter, Fine-15
    Low-Mintage Branch Mint Key

    1871-CC 25C Fine 15 PCGS. Briggs 1-A. The mintage of 10,980 pieces does not begin to tell the true rarity of the 1871-CC quarter, which was released into a "Silver State" economy desperate for government-sanctioned small change; even a Fine coin is a condition rarity. This Fine 15 representative, though significantly worn, has all letters of LIBERTY legible and faint luminosity on gray surfaces with sage, green, and blue overtones. A small silvery streak is noted at the upper left (facing) corner of the eagle's shield. The few light abrasions on each side are not nearly as numerous as one might expect on a coin of its grade. Population: 4 in 15, 14 finer (11/17).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2012), lot 3852.
