    Key 1897-O Quarter, MS66
    Low Mintage, Extremely Low Availability in High Grade

    1897-O 25C MS66 PCGS. CAC. A historic key date in the Barber quarter series, the 1897-O had a mintage of just under 1.5 million coins. Examples are elusive in all grades, and the present Premium Gem is tied for the finest that PCGS has ever certified. Perhaps equally telling is the average PCGS certified grade of just 45.7 for an even 100 submissions. The present opportunity is the eighth auction appearance of an MS66 PCGS 1897-O quarter in our sales dating to 1993. The previous seven appearances represent just three different coins, including the present specimen that appeared in our 1997 ANA sale. Both sides of this sharply struck Premium Gem exude a soft, frosted glow unhampered by the lovely iridescent toning. The surfaces are pristine and untouched by any noticeable surface flaws. Population: 9 in 66, 0 finer (11/09).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23YB, PCGS# 5617)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
