1896-S Quarter, MS64
'Big Three' Series Key

1896-S 25C MS64 PCGS. The 1896-S is one of the "Big Three" among Barber quarters, the others being the 1901-S and 1913-S. The '96-S was produced to the extent of just 188,039 pieces, survivors of which are particularly rare and desirable in grades at or above the XF level. This is an exceptionally bright coin with swirling cartwheel luster effects. Both sides present as untoned, at least outwardly, but one can discern faint champagne-tan highlights at a few angles on the reverse. The surfaces are fully brought up in all areas and probably worthy of consideration at the MS65 level, were it not for a few obverse abrasions before Liberty's earlobe.

Specialists recognize two obverse and two reverse dies for the 1896-S quarter. This particular representative was struck from the dies that David Lawrence (1994) attributes as obverse #1 and reverse #1. The former is clashed (as produced), evidence of which is seen in Liberty's ear. Population: 12 in 64, 10 finer (6/13).
Ex: Central States Signature Sale (Heritage, 5/2003), lot 6165, which realized $9,775; JFS Collection / Pittsburgh Signature (Heritage, 8/2004), lot 4085, which brought $17,250.
