    Notable 1873-CC Arrows Quarter
    A Fine 12 Survivor

    1873-CC 25C Arrows Fine 12 NGC. In his inimitable The Mint on Carson Street, Rusty Goe states that "the overwhelming evidence suggests that only a small fraction of 1870 to 1873 silver dimes and quarters from the Carson City Mint ever left that building. It would be very surprising to discover that more than 62 1873-CC With Arrows quarters found their way into the hands of the public ..." An already small mintage of 12,462 pieces, then, would itself be invalidated by mass melting. This is a Fine 12 survivor of the famously rare issue, mainly light silver-gray with golden overtones on the obverse and charcoal color at parts of the reverse. A few light digs appear in the fields, but the word LIBERTY is readable in its entirety. Census: 3 in 12, 11 finer (11/10).(Registry values: P9) (NGC ID# BZMH, PCGS# 5492)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
