    1898-O Quarter, MS66
    Conditional Rarity

    1898-O 25C MS66 PCGS. CAC. An exceptional coin for the New Orleans Barber quarter series, this Premium Gem 1898-O is quite close to a full strike, save for minor weakness in the usual area at the right shield corner and wing. Bright swirling luster covers both sides, which exhibit light centers surrounded with golden-rose and cobalt-blue at the margins. PCGS has seen six submissions at this grade level, with a single MS67 finer (10/13). Appearances of the 1898-O quarter in MS66 are an infrequent occurrence at Heritage, seen only four times in the last 13 years. This piece is tied numerically with the Duckor specimen, which we offered in our Los Angeles Signature (Heritage, 7/2009), lot 1096, a coin that realized $18,975.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 23YE, PCGS# 5620)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
