Description

    Important Near-Mint 1872-S Quarter Rarity

    1872-S 25C AU 55 PCGS. To date, this is the only extant representative of this issue to obtain an About Uncirculated grade at the two major grading services. As such, it fills an important gap between the Extremely Fine and Uncirculated grade levels for collectors who specialize in this difficult series. A lovely, original piece, both sides display lavender-gray patina that deepens slightly to olive-russet shades about the borders. Problem-free for the grade, the surfaces show ample remaining definition. With an original mintage of only 83,000 pieces and a heavy rate of circulation, this issue outstrips even the legendary 1864-S for top rarity honors among S-mint Seated quarters. NGC and PCGS combined report only 1 example in AU 55 with 7 finer (9/99). (NGC ID# 23UT, PCGS# 5483)

    Weight: 6.22 grams
