Pricing Comments: Liberty Seated quarters are probably the most under valued seated coinage denomination. The full date and mintmark set is extremely difficult to complete due to length and individual date rarities. Weak strikes are also an ongoing issue for many dates including weak head and breast details and incomplete definition of reverse feathers. You will find competitive retail asking prices for nice original and problem free coins. Quarters with small issues will be discounted accordingly.

Rotated Reverses: Reverse images are best effort to capture the actual reverse rotation with respect to obverse position. If a rotated reverse is seen in the images, then this is how the quarter appeared during photography and the descriptions may not include specific comments as to the observation.

Seated 25C 1856 1856
Briggs 1-A
Original $125 Near-Choice, Eclectic Collection.. This is a crusty, original example of one of the more accessible dates within the Liberty Seated quarter series. Dirt huddles in the protected areas, notably within the reverse shield and arrows. Strike is typical, with softly impressed stars. Briggs 1-A, with a high date and compass point reverse. Housed in a PCGS Gen 5.0 (2015) Dupont hologram holder.
Seated 25C 1856 1856

Choice $160 Misplaced Date, Choice Original. Ex. Eclectic Collection. The 1856 FS-301 quarter features the remnants of a digit punched into the folds of the gown, to the right of the shield. This example exhibits mixed shades of olive, gold and navy patina, accompanied by crusty shields and scattered dirt throughout the eagle. The originality is strong and is close to a CAC standard. A few marks in the right obverse field are noted. Housed in a PCGS Gen 5.0 (2015) Dupont hologram holder.
Seated 25C 1856O 1856-O
Choice $225 Crusty Gray Patina, Steely Fields, Well Preserved. Attributing 1856-O die varieties can be challenging as is the case for this new offering. Based on the Briggs book, I see obverse 3 paired with reverse E. Die specialist may wish to take note. This is a choice survivor with what first appears as crusty gray patina on both sides. Angled lighting exposes steely fields and aquamarine shades. Strike is typical while grading is accurate. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert.
Seated 25C 1857 1857

Gem $6300 Superb Gem Original, Osprey Collection. A thick band of blue-green color surrounds the obverse, highlighted by burnt russet patina above the head. Rose and gold centers are lightly toned, and the eye appeal is exceptional. Fully struck, an important distinction for this date, as many high-grade pieces come with soft stars or other striking issues. Under a glass, fine die polish lines are evident on both sides. CAC has certified 100 pieces, with 10 examples finer. A superb example of the type. Housed in new large font NGC holder with CAC approval.
Seated 25C 1857 1857

Gem $4900 Unquestionably Gem, Exceptional Bright Light Viewing, Sharp Steely Frosted Luster. A gorgeous gem that MUST BE VIEWED in-hand to be appreciated! Sadly, the GFRC images are unable to capture the viewing transition when placed under a bright light. The in-hand greens and rose shift to mostly light blues with a huge peripheral gold ring that is absolutely enthralling. What other superlatives can be used to describe this gem? Eye appeal and luster is of a higher grade with a contact mark by star 5 that most likely account for the certified grade. Luster is sharp and brilliant from steely surfaces. Once again, I must ask for clients to trust this description rather than the images. Photographing high grade gems with lightly contrasted patina brings its illustration challenges. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder with CAC approval.
Seated 25C 1857 1857
Reverse Die Clash
Choice $4700 Flying Eagle Die Clash, Choice Original, Eclectic Collection.. Deep gray surfaces lead toward russet patina at the rims, while the protected areas of the central devices host similar copper shades. Strike is typical, with flat stars and eagle feathers blending together. Briggs 6-F, with Flying Eagle cent clash marks above the wings. This is one of the more bizarre errors in the quarter series and clearly the result of either gross negligence or deliberate chicanery. Either way, it's a great conversation piece and ideal for sharing with other collectors. Housed in a PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2022) holder.
Seated 25C 1857 1857

Original $83 Crusty Gray, Accurately Grade, Union Bridge Collection. Crusty gray patina is uniform and validates the strict originality of this Union Bridge Collection release. Fields are minimally abraded while the strike shows some obverse weakness. Housed in new ANACS gold label holder.
Seated 25C 1857O 1857-O
Briggs 1-A
Choice $2100 Choice Original, Eclectic Collection.. A wide array of color is evident as this piece is flipped under a light, with rose, gold, and blue patina apparent. Nicely struck, with just a couple soft stars, while the usual problem area south of the reverse shield is fully detailed. Briggs 1-A, with the mintmark just left of center. All coins exist on a continuum, and this original piece is close to the CAC standard, possibly precluded by only a few stray lines in right obverse field. Still, this piece far nicer than most 1857-O quarters encountered in the market. Housed in a newer NGC holder with edge view insert.
Seated 25C 1858 1858
VF Details PCGS

Cleaned $85 Cleaned Obverse, Natural Crusty Reverse. Accurately certified as the obverse has been cleaned with some recovery. Reverse is perfectly original. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2023) holder with Cleaned-VF Details opinion.

Seated 25C 1858O 1858-O

Choice $165 Choice Original, Lightly Mottled Brown/Gray Patina, Accurately Graded. A better date with mintage of only 520,000 pieces and few examples in population reports for mid circulated grades. Surfaces are strictly original and covered with gun metal gray and blue patina. Accurately graded with no blemishes or distractions. The obverse toning is a bit mottled on Liberty but there is also some haze on the PCGS holder that impacts the image. Housed in 2013 PCGS holder.
Seated 25C 1858S 1858-S
Briggs 1-A
Original $975 Difficult Early San Francisco Date, Light Gray Patina, Toning Spots. An important 1858-S Briggs 1-A example that survived the early western frontier days. The initial smaller silver denominations sport moderate mintages at the San Francisco Mint including the 1858-S issue with 121,000 pieces immediately entering circulation and remaining there. No Mint State examples are known. This moderately circulated survivor was recently purchased and is available. Surfaces are toned an even light gray with several enhanced toning areas. Those areas are darker on the images than during in-hand viewing due to the way that GFRC images are processed. A 10x found "dirt" surrounding the lower eagle claws and arrows. PCGS has certified only 10 pieces at the offered grade. Housed in PCGS Gen 5.0 (2015) holder.
Seated 25C 1859O 1859-O
Briggs 1-A
Choice $600 Crusty Brownish-Gray, Strictly Original, Choice Surfaces, New Orleans Collection. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder. Full description will be added if not sold at the Spring 2023 Whitman Baltimore. This piece is immediately available via price list.
Seated 25C 1859S 1859-S
Briggs 1-A
Original $1295 Rare San Francisco Date, Light Gray, Bold Devices at Grade. During 1859, the still relatively new San Francisco mint struck only 80,000 Seated quarters. That mintage entered western frontier commerce and remained there for years. Indeed, not even a single Mint State example is known, as no one systematically collected this coinage at the time of issue. Present day collectors struggle to locate the date due to low survival rates. GFRC is pleased to offer this newly purchased example with light gray shades including darker gray at the peripheries. PCGS was tough on this example as there is a substantial amount of device details for the certified grade. A solid example that will fill that long standing hole in a date and mintmark set without breaking the bank. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder.
Seated 25C 1860 1860

$600 Type II/I Design Hubs, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Light Gold Patina, Conservative Grading. Ex. Saw Mill Run Collection. A superbly toned 1860 Philadelphia strike with wonderful preservation that deserves a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. The steely frosted luster offers considerable reflectance under angled lighting. Cartwheels are vibrant and certainly pleasing. Toning has subtle golden-rose hues with deeper shades on the obverse. Struck from Type II obverse and Type I reverse design hubbed dies. Strike is nearly complete with a touch of weakness at the top of Liberty's head and surrounding two stars. Conservatively graded as I've seen similar in AU58 holders. A quality offering that should not last long on the price list regardless of the premium. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder.
Seated 25C 1860S 1860-S

Briggs 1-A
Original $1900 Original Gray, Sunset Point Collection. The 1860 San Francisco date is scarce in all grades with a limited mintage of 56,000. Most surviving examples will be found in the Very Good through Fine grade range as is the case with this original example. Obverse rims are bold with six full letters in LIBERTY presence. The reverse rim has barely worn through under (U)NITED and the olive leaves. Surfaces are toned a medium gun metal gray with blue shades evident under a light source. This example is entirely blemish free with no marks, lines or other anomalies. I'm comfortable in indicating that TPG grading is a strong possibility given the natural coloring. An important offering from the Sunset Collection of Liberty Seated quarters and ideal for a Dansco or Whitman album set. Fairly priced!
Seated 25C 1861 1861
EF Details PCGS

Market Acceptable $110 Golden Gray Patina, AU Details, Ancient Cleaning, Original. A very presentable 1861 Seated quarter with darker golden gray patina. Bright light inspection exposes some center rose. I'm not buying PCGS's environmental damage claim but the luster is too reflective to be natural. I call this one as an ancient cleaning with proper retoning. Perfect for a crack out and placement in bookshelf album. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2023) holder with Environmental Damage-XF Details opinion.

Nearly the entire mintage went into circulation and remained there until well worn or lost. This survivor is noteworthy for its stellar preservation and nearly unabraded fields. Wear is uniform with the surfaces covered by a tannish-gray patina with richer brown shades on the obverse. Overall eye appeal is well above average for a circulated example of this date. A 10x inspection located a few hidden lines in the upper right obverse field of no consequence. A piece of Civil War era history that is worthy of consideration. Housed in post 2008 NGC holder with edge view insert.
Seated 25C 1861S 1861-S

Original $2850 Rare in Higher Grade, Original Gun Metal Gray-Blue Patina, Accurately Grade, Dallas Collection. An important offering for all serious collectors of the Liberty Seated quarter series. 1861 San Francisco mintage was limited to 96,000 with the entire production being placed into western frontier commerce. As a result this date is very scarce in all grades and typically found in G-VG while being rare in VF or better. This new offering is perfectly original with a crusty patina that is predominately gray-blue. The untoned obverse areas resulted from foreign material that blocked the oxidation process and eventually lifted off the surface. Trace of that material can be found surrounding star 1. Strike is typical and evenly executed. Angled lighting inspection reveals steely fields and traces of luster. Overall, a challenging date with few reaching the market at this grade level. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder.

Market Acceptable $500 Civil War Date, Steely Textured Fields, Coin Gray, Market Acceptable. Any 1863 Seated quarter with this type of look is fair game as so few are available. Surfaces have a steely texture that results from faint porosity. I'm not buying the PCGS surfaces smooth opinion, rather enivronmental damage would be more appropriate.

Choice $895 Medium S, Near Gem Original, Huge Bright Light Eye Appeal, Accurately Graded. If GFRC customers could only view this piece under bright light...Wow!

Well that all changes when this piece is exposed to a light source. The obverse turns into a color masterpiece with core blue and rose intermixed center that transitions to light yellow gold at the rims.

Briggs 1-A
Choice HOLD
New May 7! Choice Original, Mountain View Collection.. The 1878 San Francisco date appears less frequently than its mintage of 140,000 would suggest. Briggs states that, "scarcer than mintage would indicate due to melting at the mint for making the new dollar design of that year". Survivor surface quality is also an incremental challenge. CAC population stands at 14 pieces with this AG3 lot being the lowest approved. Though well worn, surfaces are toned the expected coin gray. The obverse rim is bold with four letters in LIBERTY showing while the reverse has considerable wear. The CAC price guide is $351 with a VG08 being the next available at a substantially higher premium. Housed in PCGS Gen 5.0 (2015) holder with CAC approval.

If in the market for a superior Liberty Seated quarter type piece, then please take a close look at the gorgeous gem 1883 proof example. Mirrored fields radiate sharp reflective luster that is more than pleasing. I'm certainly enjoying the multiple passes under a bright light as the coloration shifts from intermixed center rose-blue to peripheral gold. This piece has the classic proof appearance without abrasions. If looking long enough with a 10x, one might find a few wispy hairlines of no importance. Assigning a Gem quality rating to this offering was straightforward. Housed in NGC Gen 5 (1992-1995) Fatty holder with CAC approval.

Surfaces are toned an even gray-gold which does not impede the underlying steely luster. Bright light viewing exposes lovely rose shades. Fairly graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with CAC approval.
Seated 25C 1890 1890

Choice $625 Underrated Date, Superb Cartwheels, Brilliant Frosted Luster, Golden Red-Blue. The Southern Texas Collection has released a lustrous 1890 Philadelphia Seated quarter with Mint State eye appeal. This late date continues to be popular with collectors due to the low 80,000 mintage and is one of the most often Liberty Seated quarters sold by GFRC. This example radiates frosty brilliance with vibrant cartwheels that are certainly eye catching. Sadly, the GFRC images are unable to capture the luster but rather the natural rose-blue and golden shades that are prevalent during in hand viewing. A single surface mark in the right obverse field is noted for completeness. Though housed in older ANACS blue label holder, this lovely quarter screams originality and is worthy of consideration.
