||QUARTER DOLLARS - SEATED LIBERTY, NO MOTTO
||NGC MS 65
Briggs 8-G, a scarcer pairing of a type-2 obverse with a type-2 reverse. The dies are easily identified from the additional vertical stripes on the obverse in Liberty's shield above the E in LIBERTY, and the convex eye of the eagle on the reverse. In addition there are light die scratches on the reverse above ME in AMERICA, and the letters QUAR D are re-cut. A strong early strike as the dies are unclashed and the radial lines on the obverse stars are strong throughout. The R4+ rating is a little tougher than I would have assumed as the coin seems more readily available. There are currently 13 coins rated MS-65 by the two services with three MS-66s and two MS-67s rated finer. Bought from David Lawrence Rare Coins July 2004.
