Description:
Magnificent 1890 Quarter MS68
1890 25C MS68 NGC. Cherry-red, powder-blue, and sea-green toning graces this thoroughly lustrous and nearly pristine Superb Gem. The strike is penetrating save for Liberty's hair and a few star centrils. Unimprovable quality for this scarce date. Once high mintages of Morgan dollars began in 1878, the production of other silver denominations was substantially reduced for years thereafter. Dime mintages were the first to return to normal levels, in 1882. Except for an anomalous 1888-S quarter issue, production of the Seated quarters and halves remained low until 1891. The 1890 quarter, with a mintage of 80,000 pieces, has approximately the same rarity in Mint State as the 1889, which had an even lower mintage of 12,000 pieces. Presumably, the same Philadelphia-area dealer (e.g., Haseltine) retained a similar quantity of both issues for stock. Census: 4 in 68, 0 finer (10/06).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 23VP, PCGS# 5523)
