    Description

    1904 Barber Quarter, MS67
    Single Finest at PCGS

    1904 25C MS67 PCGS. Sharply detailed, with crisp definition on the eagle's claws and shield point, this delightful Superb Gem displays deep, satiny brilliance on both sides. The well-preserved surfaces exhibit highlights of greenish-gold toning, with outstanding eye appeal.

    Population Data (5/14): PCGS and NGC have each certified only a single Superb Gem.

    Heritage Commentary: Although minted in enormous numbers (more than 14 million coins), the 1904 is more elusive in Mint State than the typical P-mint Barber quarter, infrequently found at the Gem level. This coin's status as the lone MS67 PCGS example makes it a Registry Set must-have.

    Consignor Commentary: There are coins in other series designated "full head," "full bands," or "full bell lines." Well, if there ever was a category like "full claws," this coin would be among the finest known -- an amazing strike with the eagle's claws showing full details right down to the wrinkles. The coin itself is brilliant with light golden toning around the obverse rim and is quite pleasing to the eye.

    Provenance: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2005), lot 4136; Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2009), lot 475.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23YY, PCGS# 5637)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
