    1877-S Over Horizontal S Quarter, MS67 ★
    The Finest Certified FS-501

    1877-S 25C S Over Horizontal S, Briggs 4-D, FS-501, MS67 ★ NGC. Prior to examination of this piece at NGC, the finest that service had graded was just MS65. Likewise, PCGS has graded a single MS65 and one MS66 (4/16). This example from the McClure Collection is far finer than any previously encountered example of the variety. Both sides feature a bold strike with full star, shield, and head details on the obverse, and strong feather, shield, and claw details on the reverse. The original horizontal S mintmark is sharp and clear. Frosty mint luster shines through the gorgeous champagne, lavender, gold, and blue toning over both surfaces. This stunning Superb Gem will make a fine addition to a top-rated Seated Liberty quarter collection.
    From The Rev. Dr. James G. K. McClure Collection.
