Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia struck 13,600 business strike quarters in 1885. In addition to the business strike examples, the mint also produced 930 proof examples. A fair number of the business strikes were set aside at the time, making them much more obtainable in mint state than one would expect. However, even though the proof coins had a much lower mintage, more of them show up in the NGC census, by a margin of over 3 to 1.
