1880 Seated Liberty Quarter. MS-65 (PCGS). A very attractive Gem, both sides exhibit gorgeous rose-apricot iridescence with even more vivid cobalt-blue highlights at the rims. The lower reverse deviates from this toning scheme with mottling to the rose-apricot color. Highly lustrous and expectably smooth for the grade--a lovely survivor from an original business strike mintage of just 13,600 pieces.
