1877 Seated Liberty Quarter. Proof-64 (PCGS). CAC. Satiny devices and reflective fields glow with pale lilac iridescence. One of only 510 proofs of the date struck, somewhat less than half the number produced in the preceding year. A reverse die crack runs clockwise from the R in AMERICA down across the arrowheads, through the denomination and upward to the U in UNITED, an unusual occurrence for proofs.
