    1895-S Barber Quarter, MS68
    Tied for Finest Certified

    1895-S 25C MS68 NGC. DL-101. Ex: Eliasberg. A leading Baltimore banker, Louis Eliasberg, Sr. could afford to purchase any 1895-S quarter for his collection, and claimed the present virtually pristine Superb Gem as his own. The satiny surfaces are well struck and exhibit golden-brown centers. The borders offer lilac-red and blue-green toning. The mintmark is clearly repunched west, a variety currently unlisted in Cherrypickers' although it certainly belongs in that useful reference. As of (11/14), NGC has certified only two examples as MS68, with none finer. The other MS68 appeared as lot 7114 in our August 2011 Chicago Signature. PCGS has certified one piece as MS67 with none finer.
    Ex: Purchased directly from the San Francisco Mint by John M. Clapp in November 1895; John H. Clapp, Clapp Estate, Louis Eliasberg, Sr. in 1942, via Stack's; Eliasberg Collection, Part II (Bowers and Merena, 4/1997), lot 1557.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 23Y6, PCGS# 5612)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
