    Description

    High-End 1897-S Quarter, MS65

    1897-S 25C MS65 PCGS. Totally white and brightly lustrous, with above-average eye appeal even for a Gem. For the year, 542,229 pieces were struck, making this one of the scarcer issues. The combined NGC and PCGS population reports show a total of 18 pieces graded this high, with eight graded higher for this date and mintmark (2/09). The strike on this coin is needle-sharp, with no signs of weakness; even the arrow feathers are full and complete. Faint die cracks are noted on both dies around the periphery. An outstanding coin for the collector who appreciates brilliant, untoned coins.
    From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23YC, PCGS# 5618)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper

    When it came to selling my coin collection I decided they were my first and only choice. They never disappoint. Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best.
