    Description

    1903-S Quarter, MS66
    Seemingly Unmarked

    1903-S 25C MS66 PCGS. This fresh San Francisco Premium Gem exhibits sharp strike definition. Only the lower feathers and right talon are trivially incomplete, while the stars, headband, hair, and wing feathers are crisply rendered. Nearly brilliant surfaces abound with frosty mint luster and display a faint trace of gold toning toward the rims. Each side appears unmarked to the naked eye.

    Population Data (9/15): PCGS reports nine in MS66. NGC shows two submissions in the same grade. There are only three in MS67 finer between the two services, all in PCGS holders.

    Heritage Commentary: CoinFacts estimates that of the 1 million quarters struck at San Francisco in 1903, perhaps 175 coins survive in Uncirculated condition. The website's approximation drops to just 50 pieces at the Gem grade level or better. With no more than 14 examples certified in Premium Gem or higher at PCGS and NGC combined, Registry Set specialists should capitalize on this opportunity.

    Provenance: Purchased from David Lawrence Rare Coins (4/2002).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23YX, PCGS# 5636)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
