Description:
Intensely Colorful 1880 Seated Quarter, An Extraordinary PR68 NGC Example
1880 25C PR68 NGC. Ex: P. Kaufman. Type One Reverse. Briggs 2-B. Chief Engraver William Barber redesigned the reverse hub of the Seated Quarter in 1875. The Philadelphia Mint, however, did not immediately discard all of the dies sunk from the old reverse hub. At least one of these dies was in use as late as 1880, and it is identifiable by a cut over the left border of the reverse shield. This coin was struck from that die. We have not handled a proof 1880 Seated Quarter at this grade level, and it will probably be many years before we do so again. A simply beautiful proof irrespective of date, the obverse displays dominant crimson-orange toning with a crescent of sea-green color at the left border. The reverse is not as richly toned with golden-orange patina that appears to deepen slightly toward the denticles. The fully brought up devices are equally as blemish-free as the glistening, reflective fields. The only pedigree marker that we can find (and it is anything but distracting) is a small planchet void (as produced) in the reverse field below the I in AMERICA. Among the highlights of the proof Seated Quarter offerings in this sale. NGC and PCGS combined have seen only five coins in PR68, and none finer (10/02).
From the Philip Kaufman Collection. (NGC ID# 23XC, PCGS# 5581)
