    1897-O Barber Quarter, MS67+
    Fantastic Rim Patina
    Sole Finest Certified

    1897-O 25C MS67+ NGC. This 1897-O quarter would be a capstone acquisition, a prize for many a nice set of Barber quarters. It will also attract the considerable attention of Registry Set enthusiasts and others who simply appreciate its enormous aesthetics. Small areas of untoned silver in the centers are bounded by incredibly attractive rim toning on each side. The reverse palette is dominated by intense but not deep amber-gold and orange the color of a clear sunset, with small slivers of pale ice-blue at the extreme rims. The ice-blue becomes more dominant on the obverse, flattering central rose and pale violet hues. A few faint marks on the neck of Liberty are consistent with the high Superb Gem grade. The strike is close to full on the obverse, save for slight weakness on stars 7, 10, and 11. Minor strike weakness also shows on the lower reverse at the right (facing) eagle's claws and the fletchings, but this is quibbling on a coin of such exceptional quality overall. The eye appeal of this much better-date early Barber quarter issue could scarcely be bettered. Census: 3 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer (1/17).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23YB, PCGS# 5617)
