    1901 Barber Quarter, MS67
    Tied for Finest Certified

    1901 25C MS67 PCGS. CAC. This delightful Superb Gem displays shades of iridescent violet and greenish-gold toning in a dazzling play of colors. The design elements are well-detailed throughout. Vibrant mint luster shines through the toning. Eye appeal is tremendous.

    Variety: Type Three reverse, with the eagle's wing extending beyond the E in UNITED.

    Population Data (5/14): This coin is tied with one other specimen for finest at PCGS. NGC has graded none finer than MS66 .

    Heritage Commentary: The 1901 Barber quarters were struck from new hubs, hence the Type Three reverse. The mintage was quite generous, but the 1901 is a condition rarity at the Premium Gem level, and this coin shares finest-certified honors with just one other coin. Registry Set enthusiasts should bid accordingly.

    Consignor Commentary: Late in 2009 this coin emerged as the top pop for its date, and more recently one other submission has joined it. Today it is uncertain whether this coin was a fortunate upgrade or a pristine listing. In any case, it was an upgrade for this set, but only a slight one, replacing a gorgeously toned MS66 PCGS. This coin merits the assigned grade, combining wonderful toning and good luster with no distracting marks or blemishes. Perhaps its most interesting feature is that it is an example of the Type III reverse, where the left wing of the eagle extends beyond the E in UNITED.

    Provenance: Purchased from Jason Carter (12/2009)(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23YN, PCGS# 5628)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
