Despite a substantial (for the type) mintage of 1,150 pieces, the Centennial year 1876 is a conditionally scarce proof Seated quarter above the Proof-64 grade level. An uncommonly smooth Gem, indeed, the present example is veiled in warm pinkish-gray iridescence that yields to reddish-rose and cobalt-blue highlights here and there at the rims. Fully struck and revealing suitable vibrancy to the finish as the surfaces rotate under a light.
