The obverse of this 1906 quarter offers light original color over strongly lustrous surfaces. The reverse shows less toning, undoubtedly due to the type of album in which the coin was once stored. There is some weakness in the strike on the reverse, most noticeable in the horizontal shield lines on the dexter (right-facing) side of the coin. The upper right corner of the shield, along with the eagle's dexter talon and correponding arrow feathers, are often the areas of weakest detail on the reverse of this series.
