    Description

    1906-O Barber Quarter, MS67
    A Spectacular Condition Census Coin
    Eye-Catching Originality

    1906-O 25C MS67 NGC. CAC. Obviously one of the finest pieces known of this elusive O-mint quarter. Unlike the majority of known specimens, the strike details on this coin are firmly impressed on both sides with no singular area of weakness. The mint luster is thick and frosted beneath layers of gray-blue and scarlet toning that equally blanket both sides. Housed in a prior generation holder.

    Population Data (4/15): NGC shows five MS67 (one MS67 ) with a single MS68 finer. PCGS reports six MS67 and none finer.

    Heritage Commentary: The challenge of the Barber quarter series is that even so-called "common" dates become major condition rarities in the top grades, and it is these high-grade pieces that are the most sought-after by specialists. With so few others claiming technical rivalry, this CAC-approved 1906-O representative is of seemingly unparalleled importance to the Barber series collector.

    Provenance: Palm Beach Signature (Heritage, 11/2004), lot 6558.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23Z7, PCGS# 5644)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
