The obverse is drenched in a blend of lovely copper-gray, lilac-blue and pinkish-apricot colors, while the reverse is more reserved in a blanket of golden-charcoal patina. A vibrant, smooth looking specimen that is knocking on the door of an even higher grade. Late date proof Seated quarters from the 1880s are always in demand given the low mintage status of their identically dated business strike counterparts.
