    First-Year 1892 Barber Quarter, MS67

    1892 25C MS67 PCGS. CAC. Type One Reverse. As the first year of issue for the Barber design, the 1892 quarters are extremely popular with type collectors. More than 8 million pieces were minted, and examples are available in nearly any desired grade including Superb Gem as here. Two reverse types are known. Type One coins have the eagle's wing covering about half of the E in UNITED while Type Two coins have the wing covering nearly all of that letter. An informal survey of auction appearances indicates that the Type One reverse coins are seen about twice as often as the Type Two pieces.
    An incredible Superb Gem, this beauty has bold design definition with satiny luster and outstanding iridescent toning. Minute doubling is evident on a few letters on the reverse, including QUA and UNITED, and the top curves of the first and last S are partially filled. Those reverse die characteristics are similar to both varieties 102 and 103 in The Complete Guide to Barber Quarters by David Lawrence. This piece combined wonderful surfaces, exceptional aesthetic appeal, and interesting die characteristics to provide the ultimate collector's item. Population: 19 in 67, 3 finer (11/09).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23XT, PCGS# 5601)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
