1878-S 25c PCGS/CAC MS64 - San Francisco Mint Rarity

DLRC #: 361661 // PCGS #: 5510

Rare, High Grade 1878-S Quarter Wow! A really exciting high grade example of this rare Seated quarter. 1878-S is a great year for Seated coinage, especially the renowned half dollar rarity. But the quarter denomination of this same year doesn't get the recognition it deserves and serious collectors of the series are well aware of the difficulty in finding this coin in high grade. Interestingly, this is only the third example of this date we've ever handled, and the only one that has been PCGS certified (and CAC approved as well)!
