    Gem 1898-O Quarter, A Well Known Condition Rarity

    1898-O 25C MS 66 PCGS. Most of the 1,868,000 quarters that the New Orleans Mint delivered in 1898 entered circulation and remained there. While Select and Choice representatives appear on the market at widely spaced intervals, the presence of this undeniable Gem is truly the mark of a great collection. This coin is sharply struck for the issue with captivating cartwheel luster. The surfaces are awash in lavender-gray patina and both sides exhibit fascinating clashmarks (as struck). There are, however, no noticeable post-production distractions. Since both major grading services report three examples in MS 66 and only two finer (2/00), this original survivor should elicit the strong bids that befit Condition Census status.
    From the Dale Krueger Collection. (NGC ID# 23YE, PCGS# 5620)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
