Ron Guth:

The 1876-S Quarter Dollar has one of the higher certified populations of the Seated Liberty series. This date is plentiful in MS63 and MS64, and can even be found with patience in MS65. In MS66, this date is very rare and none have been certified finer by PCGS. High-grade examples will have a nice "look" and most will sport a strong strike and rich, frosty luster. This date is an exceptional value for type purposes.
