Description

Scarce Toned Gem 1888-S Quarter

1888-S 25C MS65 NGC. The 1888-S holds the distinction of being the only mintmarked quarter dollar from the 1880s, and it is, in fact, much scarcer than its more famous P-mint counterpart. This particular coin is sharply struck throughout with strong mint luster that underlies the gray patina seen over each side, and the margins frame the gray centers with subtle gradations of pale blue. There are no reportable abrasions on either side of this scarce and important late-date quarter. Population: 10 in 65, 7 finer (3/04).
From the Robert Bowling Collection. (#5521) (NGC ID# 23VN, PCGS# 5521)
