Description

Key-Date 1901-S Quarter Dollar, XF45
Rare in This Grade

1901-S 25C XF45 PCGS. Obverse B, with both 1s in date centered between denticles. Reverse B, with mintmark high, almost upright, and almost centered between R and D.
The 1901-S quarter, with a low mintage and low survivorship, is sometimes referred to as the "King of all Barber Coinage." It is almost always seen in well-worn condition, as evident from the certified population figures showing hundreds of examples in the Fair to Good range. This issue must not have been recognized as a rarity in the early 1900s and consequently circulated extensively as pocket change. When Barber quarter collecting became popular in the 1930s, most surviving 1901-S survivors were heavily worn.
The present offering represents an infrequent opportunity to obtain a Choice Extremely Fine 1901-S quarter. They just are not seen that often in this level of preservation. Subtle golden-brown and reddish gold patina clings to the margins of this otherwise untoned specimen. The design features are nicely defined; just the upper-right corner of the shield and the wing tips exhibit the usually seen softness. Scattered light marks are in keeping with a coin having experienced a degree of circulation. This piece is sure to see spirited competition for the deserving right to serve as the centerpiece of a mid-to high-grade Barber quarter collection. Population: 4 in 45, 38 finer (12/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23YR, PCGS# 5630)
