1878-CC Liberty Seated Quarter. Briggs 1-A. Cancelled Obverse Die. MS-64 (PCGS). A handsome specimen having frosty motifs and satiny fields. Boldly struck in all areas. The obverse is pale gold-gray with wisps of gold and blue at the rim. The reverse is toned in dappled orange-gold, aqua, and violet. The "Cancelled Obverse" moniker is due to a thin die gouge that extends from Liberty's right arm -- just above the elbow -- to her left knee; certainly, one of the most conspicuous and interesting varieties in the Liberty Seated quarter series.
