    1900 Quarter, Sharply Struck MS67

    1900 25C MS67 NGC. CAC. A melange of electric-blue, lavender, gold-orange, and violet patination adorns both sides of this Superb Gem, being just a touch deeper on the reverse. Sharply struck design elements are apparent throughout, and neither side reveals mentionable marks. The outstanding eye appeal is appropriately recognized by CAC. Certified in an NGC "no line fatty" holder.

    Variety: Type One Obverse, identified by "notching" in the left ribbon end and a sharply pointed right ribbon end; Type Two Reverse, identified by the tip of the wing ending flush with the top of the E in UNITED.

    Population Data (4/15): NGC and PCGS each show three submissions in MS67, but one MS68 at NGC is finer.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1900 Barber quarter is scarce in the Gem level of preservation and rare any finer.

    Consignor Commentary: This coin has a series of roller marks within the ear, and the ear itself has a wide orifice. In looking over the series I found that what should be a standard design element shows quite a bit of variation from very wide (à la 1895-O) to almost no opening at all (1906-D,1907-D). The coin seems consistent with its grade. Smoothly toned with the only mark a lint mark dropping away from Liberty's ear like a dangling earring.

    Provenance: Purchased from Larry Whitlow (4/2001).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23YK, PCGS# 5625)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
