Gem $7650 New July 7! Exceptional Eye Appeal, Condition Census, Gem Original, Important Opportunity. There are times in a collecting career when important opportunities arrive to the market. Such is the case with the arrival of this condition census 1872 Seated quarter with only three certified at grade and none finer. This Philadelphia issue boasts a low mintage of 182,000 circulation strikes and is difficult to locate in all grades, due in part to many probably having been melted in the 1873 silver melt. Larry Briggs (1991) assigns a rarity rating of R.6+ to Uncirculated pieces. The eye appeal is exceptional with center rose and aquamarine rings transitioning to yellow and orange gold at the periphery. A similar toning scheme is also present on the reverse. Under a bright light the reflectance is sharp with vibrant cartwheels. Strike is 100% complete resulting in a premium presentation of the Type II hub designs. A review of the individual CoinFacts auction records has me convinced that this lot is the third finest as CACG has certified a single MS66 along with a stickered example at the same grade. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2024) holder. Please give this offering serious consideration as I'm going with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation for astute collectors of the series.
