Type II/II, Choice Original, Frosty Silver Gray Patina, Accurately Graded. CAC Approval July 2017. The change to new Seated quarter obverse and reverse design hubs started during 1859 with the transition completed in 1861. The obverse engraving is the product of James Longacre with help from Paquet. Mintage for the 1861 date is high but locating choice original example in high AU and mint state grounds will take patience. This new GFRC example is perfectly original without a doubt. Frosty have natural mint frost and the toning is a light silver gray with hints of gold at the rims. Strike is hammered with every device detail being deeply impressed. Definitely a choice offering that is freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Fans of strictly original silver coins should pay attention here. December 1969
