    Description

    1897-S Quarter, Brilliant, High-End 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 21 pieces graded this high, with eight graded higher for this date and mintmark (6/13). The strike 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.
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2005), lot 4117; Central States Signature (Heritage, 4-5/2009), lot 462.
    From The Owen Collection, Part I.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23YC, PCGS# 5618)

    Weight: 6.25 grams
