The mintage of the 1875 Quarter Dollar is massive for the period, topping out at over four million coins. As a result, this is one of the most common Quarter Dollar dates from the 1870s, though it is far less common than the 1876. PCGS alone has certified over two hundred Mint State 1875 Quarter Dollars, mostly in MS64. Gem examples are scarce and the best examples rate only MS67, where color and eye appeal count for a lot. Check out the best examples illustrated above to see what great toning looks like.
