    Just received this Seated Quarter that I won on Ebay. I definitely got a bargain on it, but I couldn't quite get the steal - it jumped from $9 to $51 in the last second. If only that other guy had bid $40 instead I could have posted this in the under $50 thread. It was listed as an 1875 Philadelphia. I promised you that this Seated Quarter would not disappoint!

    This is probably my first real scarce CC coin with only 140k minted - every other CC coin I own is one of the "common three" dimes plus my 1876-CC quarter. These have recently sold for around $150-200 in this grade which is about what the 1875-CC 20c sells for in Good, however the quarter is much scarcer than the 20c (of which far more examples were saved from circulation). Definitely excited to have this one!

    I love it!! I remember buying one very similar to it when I was a kid. My dad took me to a pawn shop and I remember buying an 1875 and 1877 quarter. I bought the 1875 because it was 100 years before my birth year. Then I discovered what a mint mark was later that day when looking it up in my Redbook, both were "CC". I wish I remembered what I did with them. But thank you for the stroll down memory lane!
