Owner's Comments

1877 25C MS66. Type Two Reverse. The 1877 Seated Liberty quarter is more difficult to locate than the mintage of nearly 11 million pieces would suggest. Many examples were melted in 1878 to provide silver bullion for Morgan dollars. The present coin is a well-struck Premium Gem, with lustrous surfaces and gold and violet highlights. The reverse displays extensive die cracks and clash marks.

Expert Comments

Ron Guth: Hundreds of Mint State 1877 Quarter Dollars have been certified by PCGS and NGC, mostly in the MS64 to MS66 grade range.  Thus, collectors should have no trouble finding a nice example of this date.  Superb examples are a little more difficult to find, and any example in MS68 is an ultra-rarity.  This date is known for a good strike, and rich, frosty luster.
