    Extraordinary 1894-S Barber Quarter in Superb Gem Uncirculated

    1894-S 25C MS 67 PCGS. This coin was previously offered as lot 6669 in our 2000 FUN Sale, where it was cataloged as: "Despite the uneasy economic situation that permeated most of the Gay Nineties, America's commercial channels still managed to consume most of the 2,648,821 quarters that emerged from the San Francisco Mint in 1894. It is little wonder, therefore, that the present Superb Gem prides itself as the single finest certified survivor of the issue (9/99). Intense cartwheel luster rolls serenely beneath the mottled smoky-lavender and electric-blue hues that blanket both sides. The impeccable strike is well above average for the series and draws forth every last design element. As befits the vaunted grade assessment, both the devices and the fields are devoid of surface detractions. In sum, this is a lovely coin for collectors who appreciate originality alongside technical quality." (NGC ID# 23Y3, PCGS# 5609)
