Liberty Seated Quarters - Basic Set, Business Strikes

A set of Liberty Seated Quarters complete by date and mintmark, if not the most challenging such set in US numismatics, is most certainly on the short list of contenders. Those who have completed, or nearly completed, a Liberty Seated Quarter set in any grade merit the title "dedicated numismatist". The basic set of 108 coins, which excludes most major varieties, has 79 issues with an estimated rarity of R4 or higher (less than 250 pieces known) in grades of XF/AU. No less than 15 different dates / mintmarks are estimated to have fewer than 30 pieces known in this grade range. Certainly, the pursuit of a seated quarter collection requires uncommon patience and persistence, but also provides uncommon opportunities for those who love the thrill of the hunt. Most important for those patient, persistent, and dedicated aficionados of the Liberty Seated Quarter is the understanding that whether you own five of these wonderful coins, or multiple sets, it is all about the collecting journey, not merely a destination. Enjoy the hunt!

Rating: The weighted average of all coin grades (i.e. aggregated sum of each coin grade + CAC premium multiplied by its rarity factor divided by the sum of all rarity factors). Missing coins are included and assigned a grade of 0. This metric is the basis for order rank.

Complete: The number of coin entries divided by the total number of coins in the Set.

Weighted Grade: The weighted average of all coin grades (see calculation above), but excluding any missing coins.

%: The ratio of coins certified by CAC (either green or gold sticker). Calculated as the number of CAC coins divided by the total number of entered coins.

Rarity Factor: The rarity assessment for each date or variety is based on availability in grades of EF-AU and uses a scale of R-1 through R-8 with a R-1 weight being the most common while a R-8 weight being the most difficult to locate. Rarity estimates are from Greg Johnson with the Larry Briggs Liberty Seated Quarter book as reference.
