    Important Gem 1898-S Barber Quarter

    1898-S 25C MS 65 NGC. Widespread circulation around the turn of the 20th century claimed most of the 1,020,592 quarters produced at the San Francisco Mint in 1898. A prized commodity in problem-free AU, the present Gem warrants significant attention despite competition from the numerous other rarities in the present Barber quarter collection. Predominantly satiny in finish, the surfaces reveal faint cartwheel effects beneath freckled russet and blue-gray iridescence. Both sides are devoid of distracting abrasions. As evidenced by the myriad small cracks, the obverse die must have shattered shortly after impressing this coin. An interesting and rare example. Population: 4 in 65, only 3 finer (2/00).
    From the Dale Krueger Collection. (NGC ID# 23YF, PCGS# 5621)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
