Beautifully Toned Proof 66 PCGS 1878 Seated Quarter

1878 25C PR66 PCGS. Briggs 4-D. This is one of the most appealing proof 1878 Seated Quarters to sell through a Heritage auction in quite some time. The toning is simply breathtaking, the obverse displaying overlapping swirls of champagne-lilac and cobalt-blue colors. More richly patinated, the reverse is awash in lavender-charcoal shades. Every design element rises powerfully above the fields, which are appreciable reflective as the coin rotates under the light. While certainly not rare, the business strike 1878 is a bit more difficult to locate in the finer Mint State grades than an original mintage of 2.2 million pieces might suggest. As such, proofs are always in demand among Seated Quarter date collectors. Population: 7 in 66, only one coin is finer (1/03). (NGC ID# 23XA, PCGS# 5579)
