Owner Comments:

With a tiny mintage of only 640 circulation strikes, the 1881 Liberty Head quarter eagle is one of the most popular and sought-after dates in the series. Most entered circulation, as the average survivor is in XF or AU grades. Mint State specimens are quite rare. Yellow-gold surfaces display occasional splashes of reddish-orange, and partially prooflike fields highlight the motifs. The obverse is remarkably clean, while minor marks are visible on the reverse. The design elements are sharply impressed, except for the usual softness on the left (facing) leg. Imposing overall eye appeal for a coin having seen light circulation.
