Description

Prized 1879 Quarter, MS67 ★
With Delicate Original Toning

1879 25C MS67 ★ NGC. Type Two Reverse. It is difficult to conceive of a finer representative of this issue than the present Superb Gem Star coin, justly awarded the kudo for superior eye appeal. The mintage was only 13,600 pieces, but contemporaneous collectors clearly stashed away a few nice pieces. This prize offers problem-free surfaces with delicate but intense original toning. The obverse shows a mint-green center ceding to copper-orange at the rims, with brilliant steel-blue in the reverse center and green and copper-orange at the margins. Generous cartwheel luster radiates unimpeded from beneath. One of three MS67 pieces at NGC, with six MS68 coins total numerically finer (3/10).
From The Good Harbour Bay Collection.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 23VB, PCGS# 5511)
