Description

Brilliant-White MS66 Quality 1888-S Quarter

1888-S 25C MS66 NGC. Briggs 5-E. The popularity of this date among Seated Quarter collectors is unflagging due to its status as the only branch mint issue from the 1880s. While some catalogers have emphasized the rarity of the 1888-S (1.2 million pieces produced), it is actually one of the more readily obtainable issues in the entire series (per Larry Briggs, 1991). Premium quality Gems, however, are conditionally rare. Radiant mint frost swirls around both sides of this untoned representative. There are no noteworthy abrasions save for a reeding mark in the reverse field below the eagle's left (facing) wing. Sharply struck over all features with the exception of the BER in LIBERTY which is weak due to die polishing that is diagnostic of the Briggs 1-A Die State and Briggs 5-E die marriages. Population: 6 in 66, there is only one finer at NGC (2/03). (NGC ID# 23VN, PCGS# 5521)
