Customer Reviews

In 1853, the quarter's weight was reduced due to silver hoarding. And to mark the change, the mint added arrows to either side of the date and rays around the eagle on the coin's reverse. The next year, the rays were removed – making this 1853 Liberty Seated silver quarter with arrows and rays a distinct, one-year-only type!
