There were two “types” of with arrows Seated Liberty quarter dollars produced; those of 1854-1855 and again from a portion of 1873 through 1874. While the former denoted a reduction in the silver content of the coins, the latter was an indication of an increase in silver content. All proof with arrows Seated Liberty quarters are tough as there were fewer than 1,400 produced for this sub-type. To find a piece with wonderful, original toning that is devoid of bothersome patches of hairlines is a difficult task, yet there are a precious few super-gems in existence.
This particular coin would be one of those super-gem pieces. It features a lovely array of violet, navy and magenta throughout much of each side that frames lesser toned centers. The center of the obverse matches quite well with the peripheral toning while the center of the reverse sports more of what might be considered target or bulls-eye toning with the central portion being a fair bit lighter in color. This coin is completely original, devoid of signs of abuse and would be a highlight to all but the most special type sets.
