Description

MS66 Prooflike 1880 Seated Quarter
Finest of Only Four Prooflikes

1880 25C MS66 Prooflike NGC. Type Two Reverse. It seems curious that only four Prooflike quarters of this date have been certified (this being the finest), and all have been graded by NGC (3/10). We say it is curious because as Larry Briggs stated in his reference on the series, "Proof die is used this year on both proof, and for the first and only time, on business strikes." One would expect considerable confusion between business strikes and proofs as a result. This piece shows incredible depth of mirrored reflectivity in the fields with just a hint of frost. The devices are noticeably lustrous, setting up considerable field-to-device contrast. The surfaces are mostly brilliant with just a hint of peripheral color around the margins. The devices are sharply struck throughout with the only area of softness on the upper stars. A couple of stray hairlines are seen in the right obverse field. One of only four Prooflike coins certified, and as mentioned this is the finest.
From The Good Harbour Bay Collection.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 23VC, PCGS# 5512)
