This is a generally untoned piece, both sides revealing a vibrant satin to modestly semi prooflike finish from the dies. We note only wispy handling marks to help define the grade. The 1887 Seated quarter is a low mintage issue with just 10,000 business strikes produced, survivors of which are seldom offered in either circulated or Mint State grades.
