1867 Seated Liberty Quarter. Briggs 1-A. EF-45 (PCGS). A very scarce issue that is actually rarer in circulated grades than in Mint State, the business strike 1867 Seated Quarter was produced to the extent of just 20,000 pieces. We offer here an originally toned EF with vivid cobalt-blue and reddish-russet peripheral highlights bordering golden-gray centers. Boldly defined in most areas, more direct angles also call forth traces of the original prooflike finish in the fields. A concentration of abrasions on the reverse below the eagle's left (facing) wing is noted for accuracy.
