    Scarce 1896-O Quarter, A Bright, Satiny MS64 Example

    1896-O 25C MS64 PCGS. As one would expect of New Orleans minor coinage, most entered circulation and stayed there. The 1896-O is worth a premium in all grades and it is an especially challenging and relatively expensive coin in VF and better grades. In Choice Uncirculated condition, the '96-O is very scarce and valuable with only seven pieces so graded by PCGS and another seven in better grades. This is an especially well struck coin that shows the usual bright, satiny mint luster through a light overlay of gray patina. Magnification shows a few small abrasions which account for the grade, but none are worthy of individual mention.(#5614) (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23Y8, PCGS# 5614)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
