    Finest Certified 1899-S Quarter, MS68

    1899-S 25C MS68 PCGS. The San Francisco Mint continued its erratic quarter production schedule of the late 1890s by producing a mere 708,000 pieces in 1899. The federal government shipped a percentage of this issue's delivery to the Philippine Islands, where most entered the channels of commerce. Most of the survivors are cleaned XF or AU pieces. This date is underrated and underappreciated by many, particularly in the mid-Uncirculated grades. The coin offered here is "off the charts."
    This lovely Superb Gem was obviously well cared for since the day it left the coining press. Both sides shimmer with frosty cartwheel luster and fully brilliant surfaces. The needle-sharp striking definition is further enhanced with virtually mark-free fields. For future pedigree purposes a tiny, almost invisible abrasion is seen on Liberty's cheek at certain light angles. A microscopic toning spot shows under the base of the F in OF on the reverse. It is little wonder that this is the single finest certified representative of an S-mint issue that is scarce to rare in all Mint State grades (3/09).
