    1908-S Barber Quarter, MS67
    Only One Finer

    1908-S 25C MS67 PCGS. Radiant, satiny mint bloom illuminates a blush of light golden toning on each side of this beautifully preserved Superb Gem. The strike is well-executed, save for star 11 which is incompletely defined. Overall, an incredibly eye-appealing representative in a rarely encountered grade of preservation.

    Population Data (7/14): NGC and PCGS show a paltry three coins in MS67 (one at PCGS and two at NGC) and only one (the Eliasberg specimen) certified finer.

    Heritage Commentary: David Lawrence, writing in The Complete Guide to Barber Quarters, second edition, says of this date: "Undervalued in most Mint State grades. Even though Gems are no bargain compared with some other dates, you should not let one go." We would agree.

    Consignor Commentary: This is a high-grade, well-struck, brilliant coin, but one that must yield pride of place to the Eliasberg coin which was sold as part of the Hugon Collection in January 2005.

    Provenance: Purchased from Rarcoa, Inc. (9/2000).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23ZF, PCGS# 5652)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
