Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia quarters of 1873 come in three distinct varieties: the 1873 Closed 3, the 1873 Open 3, and the 1873 With Arrows. Of these variants, the last has the highest mintage, with over a million pieces struck, and the 1873 Open 3, though it has a mintage of only 172,000 coins, is one of the most available Motto quarters issues in Mint State. The 1873 Closed 3 version, however, is highly elusive, with a total production of just 40,000 business strikes, and most survivors showing a degree of wear.

Though the 1873 Closed 3 remains an underrated issue in most grades, connoisseurs are aware of how elusive the issue is in Mint State condition.
