    1897 Quarter, Highly Lustrous MS67
    The Sole Finest at NGC

    1897 25C MS67 NGC. CAC. Variegated cobalt-blue, lavender, violet, reddish-beige, soft crimson, and ice-blue toning adorns the highly lustrous surfaces of this lovely Superb Gem Barber quarter. Sharply struck design elements endow both sides though the upper-right shield corner is a tad soft, as sometimes seen on this issue. This example has been very well cared for.

    Population Data (4/15): The sole finest piece at NGC, backed up by 10 coins grading MS66 (one MS66 ★ ). PCGS reports four pieces in MS67 and none finer.

    Heritage Commentary: With a mintage exceeding 8 million pieces, the 1897 is one of the more available dates in the series. However, the issue becomes rare in the Premium Gem level of preservation.

    Consignor Commentary: A highly lustrous and beautiful coin. Although common in all grades, few could equal this gorgeous specimen. The coin exhibits a few minor die cracks: between stars 8 and 9 on the obverse, and a few wisps connect the tops of S OF A on the reverse.

    Provenance: Superior (7/2003), lot 1072. (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23YA, PCGS# 5616)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
