    1898-O Barber Quarter, MS66
    Only Two Certified Finer

    1898-O 25C MS66 NGC. There was virtually no collector interest in saving the 1898-O quarter from circulation at the time of issue, and so the vast majority of the more than 1.8 million pieces struck suffered the wear of extensive circulation in commerce. The few Mint State exceptions are of great interest to contemporary numismatists, especially the near-best coins such as this Premium Gem. Light gold and green overtones grace pale gray surfaces that swirl with luster. Both sides show die clash marks, the reverse more so, while the obverse has a touch of deeper color at the bottom rim. Softly struck on the usual trouble-spots, such as the eagle's claws, but nonetheless an attractive coin. Census: 3 in 66, 1 finer (7/14).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 23YE, PCGS# 5620)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
