  • Description:

    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, after the modern Washington Quarter series. 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.

    One of the reasons collectors enjoy the Seated Liberty Quarter series is the different varietal coins offered. The Seated Liberty Quarter saw through a few revisions, making a decent list for different varieties to collect. The 1853 Arrows and Rays Seated Liberty Quarter is one of those varietals that is more accessible than others. The 1853 Arrows and Rays Seated Liberty Quarter features arrows on both sides of the date, on the obverse, and the eagle on the obverse is surrounded by sun rays. When the US Mint adjusted the weight of each denomination, in the series, they also made adjustments to the actual coin design. In 1853 and 1873, the mint added arrows on either side of the date and only in 1853, they also added sun rays around the eagle on the reverse. Since the 1853 Arrows and Rays Seated Liberty Quarter has a large mintage of over 15 million, this variety isn't too hard to find in higher grades. Being considered very fine condition, the 1853 Arrows and Rays Seated Liberty Quarter has wear that is compromising the details on the coin.
