Gorgeous Near-Gem 1896-S Quarter

1896-S 25C MS64 NGC. As the highest-mintage issue among the "Big Three" Barber quarters, the 1896-S has the lowest price through most grades. While the 1913-S was saved in small quantities at the time of production, the 1896-S was not, and in Select Mint State, the earlier issue commands a stronger premium. Anything finer is a condition rarity.
The Choice example in this lot offers remarkable eye appeal for the grade assigned. Rose and champagne shadings dominate each side, though the area around WE in IN GOD WE TRUST shows a blue-green tint. The luster is vibrant, almost flashy on the reverse, and the minor abrasion on the chin that partly accounts for the grade is hardly distracting. Decisively struck and delightful. Census: 13 in 64, 8 finer (11/07).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23Y9, PCGS# 5615)
