1838 to 1891 Seated Liberty Quarters

In the fall of 1838 Christian Gobrecht's Seated Liberty Quarter replaced the old Capped Bust design of John Reich and William Kneass. On the obverse, Gobrecht used a modified version of his Liberty, seated on a rock and surrounded by thirteen stars. The reverse kept the Reich-Kneass eagle from the previous issue with the denomination as QUAR. DOL. instead of the earlier 25 C.

This beautiful coin depicts a seated figure of Liberty with her right hand resting upon a shield and her left hand grasping a pole topped by a Liberty cap. The Liberty Cap was a symbols of preparedness and freedom.

In mint state, almost all the dates prior to 1853 are extremely difficult to find. There are two reasons for this.

First, the weak strikes of this era made many coins look more worn than they actually were. Second, the melting that took place around 1853 due to the increasing value of silver destroyed vast quantities of coins.
