    1894 Quarter, Pristine MS66
    Superlative Color, Ex: Hugon Collection

    1894 25C MS66 PCGS. CAC. Beautiful blue and gold toning complements superlative luster on this Premium Gem Barber quarter. The surfaces are a delight to study, showing no discernible nicks or marks save for the tiniest ticks. The strike is needle-sharp, even on the arrow feathers. A coin with abundant eye appeal.

    Population Data (4/15): PCGS reports 11 submissions in MS66 with one MS67+ finer. NGC's finest are two MS67.

    Heritage Commentary: The John C. Hugon Collection of Barber coinage was among the most monumental assemblages of that design that Heritage has ever had the privilege to offer. A provenance to that collection, as here, means that little remains to be said in the minds of many Barber coinage collectors.

    Consignor Commentary: A sapling surrounded by giant sequoias, but not to be overlooked. This coin, along with many others from the Philadelphia Mint, was surprisingly difficult to find with the grade, quality, and toning I sought. The surfaces are clean and unmarked, a beautiful coin in its own right.

    Provenance: John C. Hugon Collection / FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2005), lot 4106.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23XZ, PCGS# 5607)
