1893-S Quarter Dollar, MS66+
1893-S 25C MS66+ PCGS. The 1893-S quarter dollar is scarce
in Mint State, and such pieces are typically seen only in the MS62
to MS64 grade range. This high-end Premium Gem is obviously a
condition rarity and an important Registry Set opportunity.
Exceedingly sharp definition appears on all of the usual weak
spots, such as the eagle's talons and right (facing) shoulder and
the peripheral obverse stars. Light golden interiors cede to deeper
russet border toning. A single tick behind Liberty's eye appears to
be what limits the grade. Population: 5 in 66 (2 in 66+), 2 finer
(3/19). (NGC ID# 23XY, PCGS# 5606)
