Description:
Stunning Isabella Quarter, MS68 PCGS
1893 25C Isabella Quarter MS68 PCGS. Graded MS69 by NGC. MS69 NGC Tag # 163965-001 accompanies this lot. Like the 1892-1893 Columbian Half Dollar, the Isabella Quarter was produced to help raise funds for the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. The lobbying party for this Quarter was the Exposition's Board of Lady Managers, and the design was executed by Charles E. Barber. A rendition of Isabella of Castilla, Queen of Spain and the patron of Christopher Columbus, dominates the obverse. The reverse depicts a fictitious woman kneeling with a distaff and spindle--a symbol of woman's industry. Survivors of the 24,214 business strikes distributed are difficult to locate in grades above the MS64 level of preservation, and are rarely offered finer than MS66.
We have seen one finer 1893 Isabella Quarter, that being an MS69 from NGC which we offered in our July, 2002 New York Signature Sale. The surfaces display a cornucopia of rainbow colors that yield to antique-copper shades as the surfaces turn away from the light. The luster is simply breathtaking with a vibrant, frosty texture. A razor sharp strike and pristine features round out this coin's list of positive attributes. Not surprisingly, this is tied with two other MS68s as the finest Isabella Quarter known to PCGS (6/04).
Ex: New York Signature Sale (Heritage, 7/02), lot 5040, which realized $46,000.
From the JFS Collection, the #1 All-Time PCGS Registry Set.(#9220) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28HR, PCGS# 9220)
