1864-S 25c PCGS MS64 * Major Seated Quarter Rarity *

DLRC #: 361475 // PCGS #: 5460

An incredibly desirable S-mint Seated quarter. We rarely tell our clients to throw out the price guides, but on this coin you have to do just that. 4-5 times rarer than a 1901-S quarter. Low mintage of 20,000 coins but very few survive. This MS64 example is tied for finest graded at PCGS with one other of the same date. This coin last sold in 2008 at Heritage for $41,687 (9/2008). We feel the market for such collectibles rarities has only improved and this important coin will be a welcome addition to a top collection.
