Lot Description
1878-CC Liberty Seated Quarter. Briggs 1-A. Cancelled Obverse Die. MS-64 (NGC). CAC. A sharp and satiny near-Gem from the final year of Carson City coinage in the denomination. Bold neon blue, faint gold, and deep rose highlights spring to life courtesy of the strong underlying cartwheel luster. Choice both physically and aesthetically. A raised die line runs diagonally upward across Liberty's die; the jury is still out as to whether this is a cancelled die (usually seen cancelled rim to rim in a cross pattern) or an egregious slip of the die cutter's hand
