Description & Analysis

A single obverse die was paired at different times with two reverses, one of was from the Type 1 hub of 1866-76 and was also employed in the coining of proofs. Indeed, this low mintage series from 1879-90 shows relatively little distinction in quality between proofs and currency strikings. It's not surprising that several 1880 MS quarters have been certified as PL (prooflike), since most examples display reflective fields to varying degrees.

This date is generally well struck, and worn examples are more rare than unworn specimens.
