    Description

    1904-O Quarter, MS67
    None Certified Finer

    1904-O 25C MS67 PCGS. The New Orleans Mint delivered 2.4 million quarters in 1904, a total consistent with most of the other O-mint deliveries in the Barber quarter series. Since few Southerners in the early 20th century deliberately preserved the products of the branch mint in Louisiana, the rarity of the issue in high grades is such that only the most fortunate collectors will have the opportunity to acquire any Mint State representative, let alone one of the finest-certified examples.

    When we first handled this piece in 2001, the consignor provided us with substantial pedigree information. Since we are unable to verify the information, it is included only for the benefit of interested bidders. The first sale of this coin was supposedly conducted by the Guttag Brothers in the 1920s, after which it appeared in Marty Haber's Emory Nichols Sale and an unknown Christie's sale in either 1988 or 1989. Deeply and original toned, the surfaces display lavender-gray patina with cobalt-blue shades intermingled over the right reverse. The preservation is extraordinary with both sides free of even the most trivial abrasion. The frosty luster provides a shimmering, cartwheel sheen, and the strike is well above-average for an O-mint issue. Population: 3 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer (11/16). NGC lists a single Superb Gem, also with none finer.
