Mintages for quarters dropped dramatically in 1879, and the mintages continued to fall throughout the 1880s, to a low of 5,000 pieces in 1886. Because of the low mintage, high grade survivors like the one offered here, come with reflective fields from die polishing. In choice Mint State this quarter is multiples rarer than the related Proof.
