Alone among mintmarked Seated quarter issues from the 1880s, the 1888-S (with a respectable mintage of 1.2 million pieces) was obviously produced to meet a sudden need for circulating quarters in the Western states. The present survivor is minimally circulated with warm tannish-gray patina over satiny surfaces.
