1871-CC Seated Liberty Quarter 

The 1871-CC Seated Liberty Quarter is a highly sought-after coin among numismatists due to its historical significance and limited mintage at the Carson City Mint in Nevada.  

Designed by Christian Gobrecht, the Seated Liberty design was used on various denominations of U.S. coins during the mid-19th century. 

On the obverse (front) of the coin, Lady Liberty is seated on a rock, holding a shield inscribed with the word "LIBERTY" and a pole topped with a Phrygian cap. 

The date "1871" is located below the rock. The reverse (back) of the coin features a heraldic eagle with outstretched wings, clutching arrows and an olive branch, with a shield at its breast. The motto "IN GOD WE TRUST" is inscribed above the eagle. 

The Carson City Mint, denoted by the "CC" mint mark, operated from 1870 to 1893 and produced coins primarily from silver mined in the Comstock Lode.  

The 1871-CC Seated Liberty Quarter is one of the scarcer issues from this mint, making it highly desirable among collectors.

Due to its limited mintage and historical significance, the 1871-CC Seated Liberty Quarter commands a premium in the numismatic market. Its value is influenced by factors such as its condition, rarity, and demand among collectors. 

These extraordinary coins represent not only pieces of American history but also valuable assets with the potential for long-term appreciation.
