Google Cannot Process Verbatim & Custom Date Range Searches

Go ahead and try to search using Google's verbatim filter with a custom date range - you'd be out of luck. If you try to use both, Google will remove the other filter. For example, if you add a verbatim operator to your search and then try to restrict the results to only find pages within a specific date range, Google will remove the verbatim filter.

Here is a GIF of it in action:
