Description & Analysis

Although many 1872 Seated Quarters may have been melted after Congress passed the Mint Act of February 12, 1873, we do not know whether or not proofs were affected. We do know, however, that, while more common than similarly dated business strikes in higher grades, the proof 1872 is a significant rarity in grades above the Choice level.
