    Description

    Key-Date 1896-S Barber Quarter
    Semiprooflike MS63 Example

    1896-S 25C MS63 NGC. Of the three San Francisco keys to the Barber quarter series, the 1896-S has more than double the mintage of its closest counterpart, yet it is less available in high grades than the 1913-S, which benefited from a collector movement to save the latter date in quantity. This Select Mint State representative has considerable reflectivity through the fields and even a touch of contrast with frosted, solidly struck devices. Silver interiors give way to green-gold peripheral hues occasionally dappled with blue on the obverse. Impressive all-around eye appeal. Census: 5 in 63, 22 finer (3/12).
    From The Estate of John C. Hugon.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23Y9, PCGS# 5615)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
