Pricing Comments:Liberty Seated quarters are probably the most under valued seated coinage denomination. The full date and mintmark set is extremely difficult to complete due to length and individual date rarities. Weak strikes are also an ongoing issue for many dates including weak head and breast details and incomplete definition of reverse feathers. You will find competitive retail asking prices for nice original and problem free coins. Quarters with small issues will be discounted accordingly.

Rotated Reverses:Reverse images are best effort to capture the actual reverse rotation with respect to obverse position. If a rotated reverse is seen in the images, then this is how the quarter appeared during photography and the descriptions may not include specific comments as to the observation.

Choice $1300 Choice Original, Crusty Brown-Gray Patina, Completely Struck , Accurately Graded, CAC Approved. One sees many 1838 dated No Drapery quarters on the market while the 1839 date is much more challenging to locate. Poor strikes on No Drapery designs are also a substantial issue as few example are struck up enough to appreciate the artistry of Chief Engraver Christian Gobrecht. GFRC is pleased to offer this natural 1839 example that is freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Surfaces are so crusty original with brown-gray patina and some ebony highlights mostly at right obverse rim. Strike is considered complete for the No Drapery design due to pervasive weakness. All stars have connected centrils and all reverse devices are deeply impressed. If one wishes to be exact, there is just a touch of weakness at the top of Liberty's head. Reverse horizontal bisecting die crack is bold and consistent with Briggs 1-A illustrations. Blemishes are limited to a few fully toned over random ticks that are of no consequence. Grading is accurate. A strong offering with CAC approval that deserves special attention by avid Seated quarter collectors.

Market Acceptable $525 Cracked Reverse, Fully Struck, Uniform Gray Patina, Open Claws.. A sharply struck example in later die state with full bisecting reverse die crack and obverse die crack from Stars 1 and 2 down through left rock and into rim by 1 digit. Rims are particular sharp. Surfaces are covered with uniform ebony patina especially on the obverse and across most of the reverse. The lighter reverse region by UNITED on the image is not as pronounced on the actual coin. As for blemishes, the only issue to note is that the sharp rims attracted a few tiny marks. Fresh from old collection and off the market for years. Not a strictly original example but market acceptable and priced accordingly.

Briggs 1-A
Original $395 New September 15! Underrated Date, Original Light Gray Patina, Residual Steely Luster, Accurately Graded. 1840 brought a design hub transitional year for smaller Liberty Seated coinage denominations up through the quarters. The mintage for the 1840 With Drapery date is a reasonable 188,127 but, as in the case for Liberty Seated dimes, availablility is much lower than the mintage would suggest. 1840 Drapery quarters are very challenging to locate and especially in higher grade. 1840 Drapery Philadelphia strikes are even more difficult than the New Orleans counterpart at a much lower mintage of 43,000. Why there are so few surviving examples is a mystery to me. This new offering has classic gun metal gray fields and residual steely luster under the patina. Steely and lightly mirrored fields on 1840 Drapery quarters are the appropriate surface condition. GFRC photography will enhance green coloring on certain silver coins. The green shades on the reverse are natual toning and much lighter in color when viewing in hand or under a bright light. Strike is well executed on the obverse but weak on the right facing wing and lower left eagle leg. Accurately graded and housed in new 2015 style PCGS holder and fairly priced for the rarity. Yet another quality coin from a recent West Coast collection purchase.

Choice $395 Choice Original, Late Die State, Heavy Clashing, Light Gray Rim Toning, White Pine Collection. The mintmark right reverse die pairing. A choice late die state example with bold obverse die clashing. Reverse eagle wings are boldly transferred to the obverse die. Die erosion is severe with all traces of rim denticles effaced. Surfaces are toned a light gray with some golden hues at immediate rims. There are no blemishes to discuss. I see this No Drapery quarter heading into a die variety set collection rather than being used in a type set. The late die state characteristics would be fascinating to those who appreciate. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with CAC approval. Another fine numismatic property from the White Pine Collection.

Choice $295 With Drapery, Better Date, Choice Original, Thick Crusty Gray Patina, Typical Strike, Blemish Free Surfaces, Accurately Graded. With Drapery obverse die hub with a tiny mintage of 43,000. This date is so underated, especially choice, based on the number of survivors within the TPG population reports. Total number certified by PCGS in all VF grades is 36 with CAC approval in VF being 11 for PCGS and NGC holder pieces. From the CAC population report, it is easily seen that choice survivors are clustered in the VF and AU grades with only one mint state example approved. This GFRC offering is perfectly original with choice surfaces. A thick crusty gray patina covers both sides. Accurately graded and housed in 2013 transitional PCGS holder with blue label and edge view insert. CAC approval rewards the strict originality and blemish free surfaces. Previously sold into a collection during April 2015 and now back for a second appearance.

Briggs 1-A, FS-501
Original $1650 New October 18! Drapery, Rare Large O Reverse, Original Light Gray-Gold Surfacces, Minimal Marks, Accurately Graded, Mt. View Liberty Seated Quarter Collection. The rarest collectible Liberty Seated quarter according to Briggs and listed as 1-A. The Large O reverse was initially paired with No Drapery obverse for volume production then muled with the new With Drapery obverse with a few strikes made. When paired with the With Drapery obverse, the reverse exhibits a second set of added denticles in the gaps between the first set of denticles. Total mintage for With Drapery New Orleans Small and Large O strikes is only 43,000 and a tiny fraction are found with the Large O reverse. This important die variety was included in the Top 25 Liberty Seated Quarter Varieties that was initially published in the Liberty Seated Collectors Club's Gobrecht Journal, Issue #111. Greg Johnson formulated the naming of the Top 25 Varieties and published a follow-on article in the March 2014 Gobrecht Journal Issue #119 concerning LSCC survey results for those Top 25 Varieties. The 1840-O With Drapery Large O ranked in the top ten spots in terms of rarity with 19 pieces reported. GFRC is pleased to be offering this original example from the Mt. View Collection. Original surfaces are toned a dirty golden gray on both sides. Obverse has sharp full rims while the reverse rims are mostly complete with some wear through near the olive branches. Given the amount of circulation and wear, blemishes are surprisingly minimal. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder with edge view insert. PCGS population report for the Large O FS-501 variety indicates one graded at G04 and a sale record of $1676. I believe this is the same coin. Then there are two listed at F12 and two at F15 with one having an auction record of $3738. An important die variety offering from the Mt. View Collection.

Choice $295 New October 7! Double Die Obverse, Choice Original, Steely Field and Luster, Undergraded, Sunset Point Collection. An attractive example of the #3 entry in the Top 25 Varieties set; 1841-O double die obverse. Frankly I was expecting a VF35/EF40 grade from PCGS due to the strict originality coupled with steely fields and luster. Strike is a tad weak and could have been seen as wear by those not familiar with the variety. Srufaces are covered with light gray patina with the fields being quite active under a bright light. Obverse die doubling is bold under a 10x loupe with the shield and stars 1 and 2 being most distinct. Undergraded and housed in 2015 holder with edge view insert.

Early New Orleans small denomination coinage saw extensive circulation in the deep south as U.S. efforts where underway to eliminate Spanish coinage. PCGS has graded a total of thirteen pieces at the VF25 grade level. This example is nice and original with old album aquamarine and gold ring toning on the obverse while reverse is even gray. Obverse strike is well excuted whule the reverse strike is weak. A challenging Briggs die pairing. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder.

During final die state, three prominent die cracks connect at the upper left shield edge and move towards the rims in a piece shaped manner. Surfaces are no question original with mottle brown-ebony toning on the obverse and more expansive ebony coloring on the reverse. The reverse die cracks are well raised of the surfaces and are distinct. In terms of blemishes, there is a rim mark by star 3 that is minor and some faint chatter in the right obverse field that is completely toned over. As a result, an Original quality rating has been assigned. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. A scarce shattered reverse variety from the White Pine Collection.

It is such a pleasure handling early date mint state Seated quarters when the surfaces are consistent with this 1844 example. This piece is perfectly original with obvious validation characteristics. Obverse toning is a transparent light gray that allows ample luster to radiate when viewed under a light source. There is mottled ebony and gold flake toning at the rims that can only be applied by nature. Strike is hammered on the obverse with only a trace of weakness on the eagles lower left leg and feathers. And finally, eye is all there if the buyer understands the appearance of mint state silver. Freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. I like this 1844 quarter and believe you will also.

Original $225 New September 30! Scarce Date, Original Surfaces, Light Steely Gray Patina, Accurately Graded, Mt. View Liberty Seated Quarter Collection. 1850 Philadelphia strikes have a recorded mintage of 190,800 but low survival rates suggesting many specimens were melted during the silver arbitrage period of 1850-1852. When California gold starting flowing into United States market in that timeframe, silver bullion prices increased above the face value of subsidiary coinage. This survivor is a strictly original example with steely gray patina. Well struck and accurately graded. A quality mid circulated grade example that is affordable.

Choice $1100 Choice Original, Lightly Mirrored Fields, Typical Flat Obverse Strike, Conservative Grading, Saw Mill Run Collection. 1850 New Orleans Seated quarters are notorious for being poorly struck. Actually, I can't remember ever handling a problem free fully struck example since establishing GFRC back in 2013. This date is always a challenge to find choice with TPG grading being erratic due to strike issues. Offered here is one of the better examples seen and the only EF45 example approved by CAC. Surfaces are no question original with lightly mirrored fields throughout obvere and reverse. Liberty's gown and shield exhibit substantial die rust with similiar appearance on the reverse eagle feathers. Strike is typical with partial head details and all stars lacking centrils. The GFRC images accurately capture in hand appearance but not the glowing golden rose fields seen under a light source. Housed in older blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. An important numismatic property from the Saw Mill Run Collection that deserves special attention by astute Liberty Seated quarter collectors. One will be hard pressed to locate a nicer circulated example.

Choice $585 New October 18! 1852/52, Scarce Date, Choice Original, Light Gray Patina, Accurately Graded, Mt. View Liberty Seated Quarter Collection. The 1852 Seated quarter is a scarce coin in any grade. This date is more available in high grades such as AU and Mint State, and less available in circulated condition. This is probably due to the issue having little time to circulate prior to the weight change of 1853. The 1852 date also features a rare and interesting die variety, the 1852/52 repunched date listed by Briggs as 1-A and also included in the Top 25 Varieties set by Greg Johnson. 1852/852 examples are quite scrace with obvious repunching on the 852 digits. The date position is also unique so that attribution is clear even for lower graded coins. This obverse was also used to strike two known proofs. The offered example is well preserved with original light gray patina. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder with edge view insert. CAC approval rewards the strict originality and accurate grading.

Choice $1750 Choice Original, Cold Quarters Collection. The 1852 Seated quarter date remains an enigma for me. This date is scarcer in circulated grades rather than mint state and is infrquently seen given its mintage of 177,060. This date appear to have been caught up with the silver bullion arbitrage situation that occurred during 1851 through early 1853 timeframe until silver weight was lowered. A small supply of mint tate examples managed to survive, mostly in the MS63 and MS64 grades. This offered example is probably one of those. Overall strike is well executed with just a stars 6 and 7 lacking connected centrils. Surfaces are frosty and covered with a light pewter-silver patina along with some faint gold. Blemish wise, the obverse has a few micro lines in the upper left obverse field and to a lessor extant, in the lower left and right fields. The reverse is better preserved with no blemishes. In hand eye appeal is pleasing. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert. An important numismatic offering from the Cold Quarters Collection.

First year of design and denomination issue, during the California gold rush, with mintage of 396,000. Survival rate is low due to heavy circulation in commerce and for jewelry making. Survivors are either damaged or not original coins as most were mishandled among the mining communities. Prioblem free examples in any grades are a prize for current day collectors.

Mint frosty surrounds most stars and many letters in the reverse legend. Reverse die is cracked consistent with the Briggs 1-A attribution.
