    Choice Key Date 1896-S Quarter

    1896-S 25C MS64 NGC. A splendid key date quarter with undisturbed surfaces and coruscating luster. Medium forest-green and lilac-rose toning endows this sharply struck near-Gem. Even the right shield corner and fletchings provide exquisite definition. The appearance is pristine at first glance, and only thorough scrutiny finally locates a couple of trivial slide marks on the cheek. Mint-made die lapping has attenuated the feathers near the shield. Encapsulated in a prior generation holder. Census: 13 in 64, 8 finer (4/08).
    Ex: Auction '83 (Superior, 8/1983), lot 1688; Jascha Heifetz Collection (Superior, 10/1989), lot 3669.
    From The Silbermünzen Collection.
