  • Description:

    This specimen has an extra fine obverse and a strong almost uncirculated reverse. Just the second year of minting, the 1839 Seated Liberty Quarter contains another extremely low mintage. The Philadelphia Mint produced only 491,146 quarters in 1839, making this quarter an ideal coin to find in higher grades. The 1839 Seated Liberty Quarter is considered to range between the higher part of the extra fine scale and the lower end of the almost uncirculated scale. Either way, the 1839 Seated Liberty Quarter contains very little wear with great detail still in tact. 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.

    The Seated Liberty Quarter series began its production in 1838 and continued until 1891. The Seated Liberty design was used on the dime, quarter, and half dollar and would be replaced by the infamous Barber coin series. 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.
