||QUARTER DOLLARS - SEATED LIBERTY, NO MOTTO
||NGC MS 65
A lovely evenly toned coin with one small spot in the right obverse field. Otherwise perfect, the fields undisturbed. The reverse die is the "B" variation listed in the Briggs' guide. The vertical shield lines do not quite reach at the bottom to the shield outline. In his book Larry rates this date R6 in mint state, and in April 1994 in an article in the Gobrecht Journal he listed the date as among the ten most difficult seated quarters to obtain from the Philadelphia mint. Bob Foster in a later article (GJ July 2000) rates it more towards the middle of the pack although he terms the date a sleeper. Whatever, this is a premium coin for the grade. Bought from Jason Carter April 2005.
