Copper-apricot centers are more boldly patinated on the reverse, both sides also revealing more vivid iridescent-blue toning at the borders. This is a fully impressed Gem with smooth surfaces and some semblance of a Cameo finish discernible at more direct angles. A low-mintage Seated Quarter date, the 1884 has a combined proof and business strike delivery of just 8,875 coins.
