Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint used only one reverse die (Briggs A) to deliver 14,400 business strike and 1,039 proof Seated Quarters in 1883. Examples of these two deliveries, however, are easily distinguishable by the obverse die. All proofs were struck from a blundered die with the tops of an errant 83 in the denticles below the digits 88 in the date.

The 1883 is one of several low mintages dates at the end of this series whose popularity is unflagging among collectors who specialize in Seated Liberty coinage. While proofs are relatively available in an absolute sense, survivors typically grade no finer than PR65.
