    Description

    1894-O Quarter, Originally Toned MS67
    Tied for Finest Graded

    1894-O 25C MS67 NGC. Cobalt-blue and soft lavender toning gravitates to the borders of this magnificent Superb Gem, framing golden-tan centers. The lustrous surfaces exhibit well-struck design features save for the typically seen softness on the eagle's claws and the arrow feathers. Both sides are impeccably preserved. A few minute marks on Liberty's chin are mentioned solely for identification purposes.

    Population Data (4/15): This coin is tied for the finest at NGC with one other submission in MS67. PCGS reports nine in MS66 and none finer.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1894-O is scarce in Mint State through near-Gem condition, after which it is quite rare.

    Consignor Commentary: The only weakness on the coin is on the reverse, where both of the eagle's claws and the arrow feathers are quite flat. Good luster and original toning make up for that.

    Provenance: Goldberg Auctions (6/2000), lot 715.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23Y2, PCGS# 5608)

    Weight: 6.25 grams
