1901-S Barber Quarter, MS66
Rare, High-Grade Example of This Important Series Key
1901-S 25C MS66 NGC. The 1901-S, with a paltry mintage of only 72,664 pieces, is the king of the Barber quarter series and of all the Barber denominations. Although the 1913-S has a lower mintage, most of the 1901-S issue slipped into circulation before there was widespread interest in collecting mintmarks, which did not generally begin until 1909. Thus the 1901-S, even in a well-worn grade such as AG, Good, or VG, is still a significant find. Mint State 1901-S quarters are notable rarities. So far as is known, none were saved in roll or bag quantities. At the Gem level this date is particularly desirable, standing as it does at the top of the Barber quarter series, offering a combination of low mintage, rarity in all grades, numismatic celebrity, and in the case of the present piece, a delightful combination of high grade and excellent aesthetic appeal.

This is a simply extraordinary coin, irrespective of date. The surfaces are intensely lustrous, with a richly frosted texture. Each side presents a fully brilliant finish, with no hint of patina. The surfaces are sharply struck throughout. The hair details are sharp and separated, the centrils of the stars are fully defined, and only the slightest weakness on the upper-right portion of the shield on the eagle is detected on close examination. A microscopic die crack connects the tip of the bust truncation through star 13, past the outer edge of star 12, and terminates at star 11. Also, as an additional identifier, two almost invisible milling marks are seen vertically on Liberty's lower neck. Census: 1 in 66, 1 in 66 , 2 in 67 (6/13).

Thomas / Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2009), lot 2368, which brought $80,500; Pittsburgh Signature (Heritage, 10/2011), lot 3624, which realized $86,250.
