    The Finest Graded 1902-O Barber Quarter

    1902-O 25C MS68 NGC. This coin is absolutely stunning. The surfaces are bathed in delicate pastel tones of sunset gold and iridescent green near the rims. Of course, what really separates this coin from all other 1902-O quarters are the superb surfaces. Close examination with a strong glass fails to find signs of contact in the fields, and the devices are nearly perfect. If one must find something to note we see a couple of very trivial ticks near the top of Liberty's cap, and these are about all that keep this coin from perfection. This issue is usually found with a soft strike, but on this piece even the strike is sharp, with no weakness on the stars and only a trace of softness on the claws of the eagle. While not a particularly rare date, in Gem condition this coin is elusive. In this lofty grade, this coin is apparently unique. Destined to be the highlight of the most advanced Barber quarter collection and a coin that any specialist will covet.(#5632) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 23YT, PCGS# 5632)
