Lot Description
1882 25C MS68 NGC. CAC. All of the Seated quarters in the 1880s are important rarities in higher Mint State grades, and this piece is one of the most remarkable from that decade. As expected for the grade, neither side reveals even the smallest abrasion; the small flaw between Liberty's head and the cap is a tiny planchet void, as made. Incredible original color includes, on the obverse, a concentric ring of vivid blue-green, with violet outside and cinnamon-gold on the inside. The reverse is similarly shaded, if a bit less spectacularly. Some die clashing appears on both sides. Census: 5 in 68, 0 finer (11/09).
