  • Description:

    With over 1.2 million minted, the 1873 Seated Liberty Quarter with Arrows is an easier varietal coin to locate, than its non-arrows counterpart but finding it in a high grade is another story. Considered to be in uncirculated condition, the 1873 Seated Liberty Quarter with Arrows features a flawless finished coin with no wear present. In 1853 and 1873, the US Mint changed the weight on all of the Seated Liberty coinage, plus added arrows as part of the die design. In 1856, then in 1875, the arrows were removed from the design since the aesthetic wasn't as pleasing to the mint. On the obverse, of the 1873 Seated Liberty Quarter with Arrows, the Seated Liberty is pictured above the coin's date of mintage. On both sides of the date, are two arrows pointing in opposite directions.

    It was somewhat a tradition, for the US Mint, to make a coin series that covered every denomination and each denomination had the same design. The Seated Liberty series is one of the earlier coin collections that consisted of every coin matching in means of its design. Minted from 1836-1891, the Seated Liberty coin series goes down in history as one of the longest standing coin collections. For a time, there was a misunderstanding of a law that coins needed to be minted for at least 25 years before being replaced. It wouldn't be until the end of the Barber coin series that this misunderstanding would be redirected. The Philadelphia Mint was established in 1792, by the original Founding Fathers, and as flourished in coin production ever since. Before the Denver Mint, the Philadelphia Mint was the lead coin producer in all of the US, outshining any of her sister mint branches.
