    Nicely Toned, Superb Gem First Year Barber Quarter

    1892 25C MS67 PCGS. Type Two Reverse, as identifiable by the position of the eagle's left (facing) wingtip relative to the E in UNITED. The first-year 1892 may be a common coin in an absolute sense, but it is not often that we can offer a solidly graded Superb Gem with attractive, original toning. Rich copper-gray and cobalt-blue colors compete for dominance on both sides with some brighter gold and blue undertones evident at direct angles. Vibrant mint frost swirls beneath the patination, and the fully impressed features are fully appreciable in the absence of bothersome abrasions. A tiny swirl of slightly deeper color behind Liberty's mouth is noted solely for accuracy. Population: 12 in 67, 1 finer (3/04).
    Ex: Charlotte ANA Signature Sale (Heritage, 3/03), lot 5722, which realized $3,450.
