    Finest Known 1907-S Barber Quarter, MS68 PCGS

    1907-S 25C MS68 PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg Collection. It has been quoted by David Lawrence, one of the foremost authorities on Barber coinage, "The 1907-S, while not a rare date when all grades are considered, is nonetheless a very desirable coin at the Gem level." This Superb Gem specimen challenges perfection. Sharply struck overall with the only weakness being very slight and confined to the upper right portion of the shield. Delicate argent-gray toning is accented with hues of sea-green, golden, and hints of crimson-rose as the coin rotates under a light. Under magnification, a few delicate cracks are seen on the obverse, notably at the left bust truncation point extending toward star 1 and one at the right bust point to star 13, the latter position being especially popular for cracks on coins of this series. There are no objectionable spots or flaws, the only visible identifier is an ancient, microscopic mark near Liberty's ear lobe. No other 1907-S Quarters have been graded MS68 by either service (11/04).(#5648) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 23ZB, PCGS# 5648)
