    1902 Barber Quarter, MS67
    Tied for Finest Certified

    1902 25C MS67 PCGS. Lavish aquamarine, dove-gray, and pumpkin-gold toning ensures the eye appeal of this lustrous Superb Gem. The strike is bold, despite a touch of softness at the base of the arrow fletchings. The fields are close to pristine, and the portrait is also undisturbed by contact.

    Population Data (4/15): The finest certified are three MS67 at PCGS and a sole MS67 at NGC.

    Heritage Commentary: Among Barber quarter issues, only the 1899 has a higher mintage than the 1902. However, contemporary collectors appear to have ignored the series. It later gained favor when stores began selling coin holders, but by then, only well-circulated examples were available. A small number of Mint State pieces were presumably set aside by forward-looking numismatists, such as Wayte Raymond. But at the MS67 level, the population profile of the 1902 is surprisingly similar to that of the famous 1901-S series key.

    Consignor Commentary: A few light obverse roller marks (as made) are offset by the attractive toning. My collection also includes a bright-white MS66 PCGS example, but natural toning is really paramount for me.
