    Description

    Key-Date 1901-S Quarter, XF Details
    Sharply Defined

    1901-S 25C -- Obverse Scratched -- NGC Details. XF. The key 1901-S Barber quarter is a prized issue in any grade, and even some impaired examples are highly desirable. The present XF Details specimen is just such a coin. The NGC disclaimer refers to a horizontal, hair-thin scratch from below Liberty's ear to the dentil above star 3. It is not readily visible to the unaided eye and is the only mark of consequence on the coin. A few other minute marks are within the parameters of a coin having seen relatively brief circulation, and there are no mentionable rim dings.
    The silvery surfaces display whispers of soft violet and gold around the devices. These exhibit strong detail throughout. Only the upper-right shield corner is a tad soft, not uncharacteristic of the issue. All letters in LIBERTY are bold, as are those in E PLURIBUS UNUM, and the dentilation is strong on both sides.
    This piece will find a deserving home in a midgrade Barber quarter collection.
    From The J.D. Tanner Collection.
