    Premium Gem 1896-O Quarter
    The Friend Specimen

    1896-O 25C MS66 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Friend. An 1896-O quarter in any grade level is an unusual sight even at Heritage, and as might be imagined for a relatively obscure New Orleans issue of fewer than 1.5 million pieces, coins finer than Gem are condition rarities. This Premium Gem, comparable to the Clapp/Eliasberg/Duckor specimen in grade, service, and CAC label, has a delicate blush of peach patina over swirling luster with just a hint of satin. Carefully preserved with strong inner detail, though several obverse stars and the eagle's right claw show a degree of softness. Population: 3 in 66, 1 finer (11/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23Y8, PCGS# 5614)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
