Description & Analysis

This is the third and final entry in the No Drapery series of Seated Liberty Quarter Dollars. Mint State examples are moderately scarce, but gems are quite rare. A few impaired Uncirculated examples are known from a hoard discovered underground in New Orleans during the early 1980s.

Both a repunched date and a repunched are known, but these are of limited interest, given the overall difficulty of completing this long series.
