1870 Liberty Seated Quarter. Proof-65 (NGC). The obverse is untoned with a decided cameo "look" to the finish, while the reverse is just a tad less vibrant beneath a dusting of pale silver-gold iridescence. Fully struck throughout, with no hairlines or other blemishes that would call into question the validity of the Gem grade. Much scarcer as a date than the Proof Seated quarters from the 1880s.
