Elusive SMS 1964 Quarter1964 25C SMS MS66 PCGS. Type A reverse. Unknown to the collecting community for nearly twenty years after their production, a small hoard of specimen Mint Sets appeared during the 1980s. Presumably, the Philadelphia Mint produced several 1964-dated Special Mint Sets in 1965 to fine tune production techniques for the large scale mintages of the 1965 to 1967 Special Mint Sets. PCGS has certified only 27 specimens in all grades. The present piece is satiny rather than prooflike, and has a razor-sharp strike. The incredibly smooth surfaces further rule out business strike status.
From The Houston Collection of Washington Quarters.(Registry values: P1) (PCGS# 5974)
