    Colorfully Toned Gem Uncirculated 1898-O Barber Quarter

    1898-O 25C MS65 PCGS. The 1898-O is one of the scarcest dates in the series in VF and higher grades. In Mint State it is ranked as third scarcest in the series. High grade examples such as this one are very rare and seldom encountered. The surfaces are bright overall with a strong semi-prooflike glimmer in the fields. The centers are almost untoned but the margins are encircled by deep golden-russet and cobalt-blue toning. The obverse is very sharply struck with just the slightest hint of weakness evident over the highpoints of the reverse. A superlative example of this rare issue. Population: 5 in 65, 2 finer (3/04).
    Ex: Central States Signature Sale (Heritage, 5/03), lot 6167, which realized $8,337.50.
