    Description

    1898-S Quarter, Sharp MS65+
    Two Finer at PCGS, Ex: Clapp-Eliasberg

    1898-S 25C MS65+ PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg. Rose-gray and scattered slate-gray patina compete for territory on this relatively unmarked 1898-S Barber quarter, a better-date issue seldom seen so fine. There are few marks of any consequence, and the strike is quite sharp, with the exception of a couple of the stars on the reverse, above the eagle. An extremely appealing and lustrous example. Population: 7 in 65 (1 in 65+), 2 finer (5/15).
    Ex: Purchased by John M. Clapp directly from the San Francisco Mint in November 1898; John H. Clapp; Clapp estate to Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. (1942); Eliasberg Collection (Bowers and Merena, 4/1997), lot 1566.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23YF, PCGS# 5621)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
