Conditionally Rare Superb Gem 1888-S Seated Quarter, Finest-Graded at PCGS

1888-S 25C MS67 PCGS. 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). Superb Gems, however, are conditionally rare. Indeed, this specimen is the only MS67 and the single-finest example that PCGS has seen. The present coin is sharply struck with impeccably preserved, lustrous surfaces visited by whispers of golden-brown and lavender, joined by cobalt-blue on the reverse. Population: 1 in 67, 0 finer (7/06).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 23VN, PCGS# 5521)
