    1901-S Quarter, Remarkably Clean, Original VF25

    1901-S 25C VF25 PCGS. CAC. David Lawrence's Obverse B with both 1s in the date centered between denticles, and Reverse A with the mintmark slightly angled and low. The 1901-S circulated extensively in the channels of commerce as seen by the majority of certified coins in the Poor to Very Good range. Mid-range Very Fine pieces such as the present offering are not seen that frequently; indeed, they are quite unusual as PCGS and NGC have graded only 12 VF25s.

    Light silver-gray surfaces exhibit well-defined devices. All the letters in LIBERTY show clearly except for the legs of the R. Likewise, all the letters on the reverse motto ribbon show. Close examination reveals remarkably clean surfaces, unusual for a coin that has seen moderate circulation. Furthermore, both sides are original. This key-date representative, well-deserving of the CAC endorsement (one of only three CAC-endorsed VF 1901-S quarters), will see spirited bidding among Barber quarter specialists. Population: 10 in 25, 59 finer (11/15).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23YR, PCGS# 5630)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
