    Problem-Free 1901-S Quarter, VG8

    1901-S 25C VG8 PCGS. The 1901-S is the most desirable and sought after piece in the Barber quarter series. Unfortunately for collectors, this demand is at odds with the fact that this issue was heavily circulated in the channels of commerce. One only needs to peruse the PCGS/NGC population figures to verify this. Of the approximately 650 1901-S quarters certified to date by the two services, about 460 coins (71%) grade Poor to Good 6.
    The VG8 specimen offered in this lot displays natural medium gray patina in the fields that highlights the lighter silver-gray motifs. Both obverse and reverse exhibit full rims, somewhat stronger on the former, and portions of the dentilation are apparent on each. The L and Y of LIBERTY are clear, and the top of the T shows. The surfaces are remarkably clean for a moderate to heavily circulated coin, bearing far fewer marks than would be expected for the VG8 numerical designation. In sum, this problem free key date will make a great addition to a low to mid-grade Barber quarter collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23YR, PCGS# 5630)
