Description & Analysis

Only 10,000 business strikes were coined, and examples are seldom seen, although they are usually frosty and lustrous when they are encountered. Breen commented that this date was less hoarded than some of the early quarter dollars in the 1880s. Most business strike examples are found in or near Mint State grades, although almost never in high Uncirculated condition.
