Exceedingly Rare 1913-S Quarter, MS66 PCGS

1913-S 25C MS66 PCGS. With an original production of a mere 40,000 coins, it is no surprise that the 1913-S Barber Quarter has the lowest mintage of all non-gold, regular issue U.S. coins from the 20th century. The '13-S is one of the three most difficult issues in this series, along with the 1896-S and 1901-S. David Lawrence states that two sets of dies were probably used for the entire production. At least one of the obverse dies developed breaks, this one being a particularly late state with a noticeable crack that begins at the rim, through the 3 of the date, and up to the tip of Liberty's bust. Also, a small vertical crack is seen below Liberty's ear. This coin is untoned except for scattered, small apricot toning spots over the right portion of the obverse. The luster is full, with a bright satiny sheen, and the only mentionable distraction is a dark spot in the reverse field below the eagle's left (facing) wing. Although not as rare as the '01-S in high grades, the '13-S is still a challenging date to locate as a Gem or better, with only 24 coins graded by PCGS above the MS64 level (4/04). A shimmering, high-end example of this prized 20th century rarity.
