1861 Seated Liberty Quarter, AU50 PCGS.

1861 Seated Liberty Quarter, AU50 PCGS.


An influx of silver from the Western states resulted in a large mintage of 4.8 million quarters in 1861. Only a year later most of these coins would be withdrawn from circulation after specie payments were halted and precious metals began to be hoarded and exported.

The issue serves as a popular No Motto type coin from the Civil War period. Most examples, this one included, are sharply struck. Original luster and natural golden-gray patina covers each side. This is an appealing example for the grade.
