Lot Description
1875-CC Liberty Seated Quarter. Briggs 2-B. VF-35 (PCGS). CAC. Pleasing medium gray surfaces are evenly toned with plenty of bold definition remaining to the devices. Scarcer than even a limited mintage of 140,000 pieces might suggest, the 1875-CC is among the more underrated issues in the Liberty Seated quarter series of 1838 to 1891, as this quote from John McCloskey's article "The 1875-CC Quarter" in the March 1981 edition of <em>The Gobrecht Journal </em>makes clear:<br /> <br /> <em>"the listed mintage of 140,000 pieces [for this issue] doesn't stand out as anything unusual in a series that has 45 other dates with lower figures given. Yet in terms of availability it is one of the most difficult dates in the series to find. Please note that I do not mean to imply that the 1875-CC quarter is prohibitively rare, but only wish to indicate that it is just not available in today's market."</em>
