1891 Seated Liberty Quarter. Proof-66 (PCGS). Obviously stored for many years in a paper envelope, this gloriously toned specimen exhibits deep, rich, lavender-copper patina to the obverse. The reverse is more vibrant with a halo of copper-blue peripheral toning around a champagne-apricot center. Radiant mint reflectivity is best appreciated at more direct angles. Captivating Gem quality for this final year proof issue in the long lived Seated quarter series.
