    Impressive AU55 1901-S Quarter

    1901-S 25C AU55 NGC. On the basis of eye appeal alone this is a desirable coin, perhaps as lustrous as an AU55 piece is ever found. Yet, when one factors in that this is the much pursued, low mintage key date 1901-S quarter, a coin generally found -- in the rare circumstances when it's found at all -- in grades of Good and even lower, the true quality of this coin starts to become evident. Only a minimum of wear is evident on this beauty, and most of that is located unobtrusively on Liberty's cheek and neck. As mentioned earlier, this is an unusually lustrous piece; indeed, although the luster is broken in the obverse fields, the reverse doesn't appear to have lost a bit of mint frost in its undoubtedly brief foray into the channels of commerce. The obverse shows muted burgundy-gold color around silver-white highlights, while the reverse is essentially white with just a wisp or two of gold. This is an outstanding lightly circulated coin that will fit very well into a high grade Barber set.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23YR, PCGS# 5630)

    Weight: 6.25 grams
