1866 Seated Liberty Quarter – Ex. Hayes

Ex. Jimmy Hayes Collection, Stacks, October 1985, lot 44, where it was described: “Gem Brilliant Uncirculated. A superb example of this rare date. A marvelous strike for this notoriously weak date. Splendid russet toning with peripheral iridescence. Discovered in an original 1866 Proof Set, obviously inserted by the Mint to make up for the lack of a Proof. One of the “key” types of this series.”
