Single Finest Known, Brilliant 1896-O Barber Quarter, MS68 NGC

1896-O 25C MS68 NGC. Years ago, the 1896-O Quarter was considered to be one of the great key issues of the series, but since then it has dropped from view somewhat, due to the paucity of examples on the market, thus not providing the opportunity to exhibit them. David Lawrence has commented that the '96-O is the first of the New Orleans mint Barber Quarters that is truly scarce in all grades.
Only a few pieces survive even at the MS65 (Gem) level, and this remarkable specimen happens to be the single finest known (11/04). A breathtakingly sharp strike greets the viewer, as does a brilliant, satiny, lustrous appearance overall. We report the virtual absence of toning, save for just a hint of patina as the coin is turned under a light. As expected of the MS68 grade, there are no telltale marks or spots. A slight amount of counterclockwise die rotation is noted. While looking at the reverse, a prominent raised die lump is detected about two-thirds of the way down the upright of the first T in STATES, a very distinguishing feature.(#5614) (Registry values: N10218) (NGC ID# 23Y8, PCGS# 5614)
