  • Description:

    The Philadelphia Mint produced over 9 million quarters in 1857, which is considered moderately high for the series. The 1857 Seated Liberty Quarter is considered to be in good condition, exhibiting extreme wear on the coin's entirety. The Philadelphia Mint was the main mint, in the US, that produced some of the most valuable coin collections we know today. Being established in 1792, the Philadelphia Mint is almost as old as this US and was founded by the Founding Fathers. The Philadelphia Mint put the US on the international commerce map, allowing for the new country to participate in importing and exporting with other countries.

    Used on the dime, quarter, and half dollar, the Seated Liberty design replaced by the infamous Barber coin series.The Seated Liberty Quarter series began its production in 1838 and continued until 1891. The quarter underwent numerous revisions throughout its cycle as the US quarter, creating varietal types for collectors. Some examples of these varieties are large and small dates, stars and no stars, drapery being removed, re-struck mint-marks, and a die crack at various stages of production. The Seated Liberty collection is not for the faint of heart and is mainly popular among experienced collectors.
