Description & Analysis

Though not unique, like the 1873-CC No Arrows dime, this issue is still an extreme rarity. Indeed, it is the rarest currency striking in the Seated Liberty Quarter Dollar series. Four examples have been verified to exist, with a fifth one unconfirmed.

Some 4,000 quarter dollars were coined at the Carson City Mint early in the year. It had been the practice of that facility to strike small quantities of dimes and quarters annually, even though there existed no real demand for them in local commerce. It's almost a certainty that all but a few of the 1873-CC No Arrows quarters were still at the mint when a change in the weight standard rendered them obsolete. These coins would have been melted sometime during the late spring or early summer, with just a few examples escaping through some now forgotten channel. As three of the four verified survivors are Mint State, these clearly were preserved intentionally.

This issue has the same style of mintmark as the 1870-72 CC-Mint quarters, but a different die was finally placed into the press for 1873.
