    Splendid 1902-S Barber Quarter, MS67
    Tied for Finest at PCGS

    1902-S 25C MS67 PCGS. CAC. The 1902-S quarter is an extremely elusive issue in the Barber series. For many years PCGS had certified but a single 1902-S in MS67, a coin we have had the privilege to handle numerous times since 1994. We at first thought that the present coin was an "old friend" coming back for a return visit--something we always enjoy at Heritage--but it is, in fact, a second example in MS67 that has recently joined the ranks of finest at PCGS. The splendid surfaces on this piece show a mixture of untoned silver-gray mixed with lilac and olive-gray in varying degrees on both sides. As the grade demands, there are essentially no distractions on this piece, although a hint of the normal strike softness appears at the upper right shield corner. The strike elsewhere is quite sharp. As further testament to the elusiveness of this issue, we note that the fabulous John C. Hugon Collection (Heritage, 1/2005), which contained many landmark rarities in the Barber series, managed "only" an MS65 NGC example of the 1902-S. Population: 2 in 67, 0 finer.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23YU, PCGS# 5633)
