    1897-S Quarter, MS65
    Sharp Strike

    1897-S 25C MS65 PCGS. The 1897-S Barber quarter is a difficult acquisition in any level of preservation and Mint State pieces present a very real challenge. Dazzling luster emanates from this lovely Gem specimen, and a solid strike leaves complete delineation on the design features. Nearly untoned surfaces show a wisp or two of light peripheral gold-tan color under magnification. The few grade-consistent marks take nothing from the coin's overall appeal. Population: 10 in 65, 7 finer (6/16).
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 2472; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2010), lot 927.(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23YC, PCGS# 5618)

    Weight: 6.25 grams
