    Description

    1875-CC Seated Liberty Quarter, MS66
    Finest-Certified Example

    1875-CC 25C MS66 PCGS. CAC. Briggs 1-A. In 1875, the Carson City Mint struck 133,290 twenty cent pieces in its first year producing the denomination. The public saved the new coins as novelties and dismissed the 140,000 quarters struck as uninteresting. As a result, CoinFacts estimates only 250 pieces are extant with 30 coins in mint condition. Probably no more than five survivors are left in Gem condition and this piece is the only Premium Gem certified at either of the leading grading services (1/15).

    Each side of this delightful Premium Gem exhibits shades of violet, blue, green, orange, and yellow toning that progress outward from the centers in spectacular fashion. This Carson City product offers well-struck design elements, despite typical softness on Liberty's head and the stars. This coin is a "must-have" for the finest Registry Set. Population: 1 in 66, 0 finer (1/15).
