    Description

    1908 Barber Quarter, MS67
    Richly Toned Throughout
    Sole CAC in This Grade

    1908 25C MS67 PCGS. CAC. Radiant, somewhat frosty mint luster beautifully illuminates rich shades of forest-green, cherry-red, orange-gold, and midnight-blue toning as it cartwheels around each side. Star 3 on the obverse and the eagle's talons on the reverse are incompletely defined, though the strike is otherwise sharp. This lovely coin is well worthy of the finest Registry Set or personal collection.

    Population Data (7/14): This is one of two MS67 at PCGS, while NGC has seen three others. None are finer at either service. This is the sole MS67 with the CAC green approval sticker.

    Heritage Commentary: The 1908, with a mintage in excess of 4.2 million coins, is understandably an easily obtainable issue in grades through MS65; cross into the Premium Gem category, however, and its availability declines, and finer coins are decidedly rare.

    Despite the consignor's reserved opinion about this coin, its vibrantly lustrous surfaces and rich multihued toning deliver a degree of eye appeal not often observed on Barber coinage; a piece that is truly finer than most seen.

    Consignor Commentary: Technically flawless but one of the few coins in the set to which I give a below-average grade for eye appeal, as heavy, dark, orange-brown toning deadens the luster. Contrast this coin to the 1896 in this set and you can get some idea of the wide range of quality a grade of MS67 can encompass.

    Provenance: Purchased from Larry Whitlow (2/2001).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 23ZC, PCGS# 5649)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
