    Lustrous MS66 1905-O Quarter--A Rare and Valuable Issue in the Series

    1905-O 25C MS66 NGC. David Lawrence called the 1905-O "the most underrated date in the set." The secret is out now, and premium coins such as this one regularly bring in the range of $10,000. The 1905-O is very rare in such a superior state with NGC having only certified one other MS66 with one piece finer, while PCGS has graded five coins with one finer (3/05). This is an exceptionally attractive coin with soft, frosted mint luster that is more akin to a Philadelphia or even San Francisco product rather than the hard, satiny coins one is accustomed to seeing from the New Orleans mint. The striking details are a bit soft, an almost inescapable trait of New Orleans coinage, but the surfaces are smooth and show no mentionable or distracting marks on either side. Light, almost untoned centers are surrounded by rose-golden and sea-green rings of color at the margins. A rare opportunity for the Barber quarter collector.(#5640) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23Z3, PCGS# 5640)
