1956 Washington Quarter PCGS PR66DCAM

1956 Washington Quarter PCGS PR66DCAM

In 1931 Laura Gardin Fraser won the competition for the new Quarter Design, but was refused twice by Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon. In 1932 Odgen Mills succeeded Mellon and approved a design by John Flannagan, the design that is still used today. This 1956 Washington Quarter offered here is striking. Deep watery fields are the setting for the crisp cameo devices.

Coin of the Week

1879 Seated Liberty Quarter PCGS MS68+ (CAC)

The Seated Liberty denominations can be a bear for type set collectors and are definitely among the most difficult for the date/mintmark collectors. Taking the quarters by themselves, there are six varieties or sub-types generally recognized for inclusion into a type set, which include No Drapery, No Motto, Arrows & Rays, Arrows No Motto, With Motto as well as Arrows With Motto. Those collectors who buy gem or near-gem coinage typically do not obtain each of these varieties and instead will concentrate on one or two superb examples of the type. This coin would satisfy nearly anyone wanting to obtain a super-gem for type purposes.

The With Motto coinage is the most easily obtained in high grade, but even in this variety there are gradations to the definition of “easily obtained”. The great majority of the latter date issues, starting with 1879 and continuing through the end of the series, were produced in such strikingly low quantities that there basal price levels are quite high. The coin offered here is from that latter production period and had an original mintage of only 13,600 pieces. Both obverse and reverse are awash in a rich blend of blue and violet that start as swirls of deep navy around the rims and gradually change to violet in the center. The coin is very clean of marks, as would be expected at the MS68+ grade level, and the strike is quite strong throughout including the eagle’s talons and wing tips, Ms. Liberty’s hair and fingers and along the rims of both obverse and reverse shields. This coin glows when rotated in the light and has superb “curb appeal” as well as superb eye appeal under a loupe. This could be a one-coin collection, the highlight of a complete type set or the cornerstone to a fabulous Seated Liberty type set.

Coin of the Week

1874 Seated Liberty Quarter with Arrows PCGS PR66 (CAC)

There were two “types” of with arrows Seated Liberty quarter dollars produced; those of 1854-1855 and again from a portion of 1873 through 1874. While the former denoted a reduction in the silver content of the coins, the latter was an indication of an increase in silver content. All proof with arrows Seated Liberty quarters are tough as there were fewer than 1,400 produced for this sub-type. To find a piece with wonderful, original toning that is devoid of bothersome patches of hairlines is a difficult task, yet there are a precious few super-gems in existence.

This particular coin would be one of those super-gem pieces. It features a lovely array of violet, navy and magenta throughout much of each side that frames lesser toned centers. The center of the obverse matches quite well with the peripheral toning while the center of the reverse sports more of what might be considered target or bulls-eye toning with the central portion being a fair bit lighter in color. This coin is completely original, devoid of signs of abuse and would be a highlight to all but the most special type sets.
