    1904-O Barber Quarter, MS67
    Spectacular Multicolor Toning

    1904-O 25C MS67 PCGS. CAC. The 1904-O Barber quarter is particularly difficult to find well-struck and problem-free. Fortunately, this coin is boldly defined for an O-mint issue, with just a touch of softness on the eagle's claws, and its surfaces are refreshingly smooth beneath a mixture of blue, magenta, and golden-orange toning that is truly captivating. Vibrant mint luster shines through the patina and eye appeal is extraordinary.

    Population Data (5/14): PCGS has graded three MS67 and none finer. NGC has seen a single MS67 and none finer.

    Heritage Commentary: Unlike its silver dollar brethren, which were found in large quantities tucked away in government vaults until the 1960s, few 1904-O quarters were spared from decades of circulation. Even an XF can be difficult to locate and the appearance of a nice Uncirculated piece will always stir interest among specialists. So it is with a considerable amount of excitement that we offer one of the finest known examples of this conditionally scarce New Orleans issue.

    Consignor Commentary: This coin has been called a colorful Superb Gem in prior lot descriptions. And so it is. Somewhat weakly struck on the reverse in the area around the eagle's claws. The obverse is picture-perfect and beautifully colored.

    Provenance: Hugon Collection / FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2005), lot 4137.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23YZ, PCGS# 5638)
