    1899-S Barber Quarter, MS67
    Among the Finest Certified at NGC

    1899-S 25C MS67 NGC. This high-end Superb Gem is almost in a class by itself; the strike is razor-sharp throughout. Radiant, frosty mint luster is awash in rich lavender and orange-gold hues on the obverse, while the reverse displays varying shades of olive-gold. An essentially perfect coin in every respect.

    Population Data (7/14): NGC shows five MS67 and none finer, while PCGS shows two in Superb Gem and one finer.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1899-S is a low-mintage issue (only 708,000 pieces struck) and is notably scarce in all Mint State grades; Superb Gem examples, however, are decidedly rare.

    Consignor Commentary: The contrast between this coin and the also offered 1899-O, both graded MS67 NGC, shows how varied this grade can be; the 1899-O would have to lie in the lower portion of the range, while this coin would be right at the top. A strong strike throughout, radiant luster, and beautiful toning combine to produce a scintillating Superb Gem. There are no marks or distractions to speak of, just a lovely, lovely coin.
