    Description

    1896-S Quarter, AU55
    Popular Key Series Issue

    1896-S 25C AU55 NGC. Just a touch of wear separates this attractive silver-gray piece from Mint State and a much higher price. A couple of small reeding marks on the cheek and at the bridge of the nose are the only mentionable contact, and the strike is quite well-executed throughout both sides (including the problematic upper-right shield corner). The 1896-S is a difficult issue to find in so nice a grade and with the lustrous aesthetics this piece possesses. Census: 4 in 55, 39 finer (10/14).(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23Y9, PCGS# 5615)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
