    The Single Finest Certified 1897-S Barber Quarter, MS 68 NGC

    1897-S 25C MS 68 NGC. This lot represents an important offering for us. The single finest certified survivor of this semi-key issue (2/00), this coin is also the most desirable 1897-S Barber quarter that we have ever offered. The only coin in recent memory that comes remotely close to this Superb Gem is the PCGS MS 66 specimen that realized $6,600 as lot 201 in our 1997 Phoenix Bullet Auction (5/97). Abrasion-free even after the most careful scrutiny, the present example is, nevertheless, far superior to even that important Gem. Expertly struck over the devices, the fields exhibit modest prooflike tendencies. Both sides are lightly bathed in milky-white haziness, but the overall appearance is one of radiant brilliance. One of only 542,229 pieces produced and a rare bidding opportunity for the advanced Barber quarter collector.
    From the Dale Krueger Collection. (NGC ID# 23YC, PCGS# 5618)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
