    1911-D Barber Quarter, MS67
    Likely the Finest Known, Ex: Eliasberg

    1911-D 25C MS67 PCGS. CAC. Ex: Eliasberg. Ice-blue and lavender-gray shades compete for dominance over both sides, but a crescent of orange coloration interposes itself about the upper obverse denticles. There is not a single abrasion worthy of mention and, although not complete, the strike is well above-average for the series.

    Population Data (7/14): This is the sole finest certified of the date, trailed in MS66 by two other PCGS coins. None are finer than MS65 at NGC.

    Heritage Commentary: Quarter production at the Denver Mint fell to only 933,600 pieces in 1911, making the date one of the more challenging in the series. At and above the Gem grade level, however, the issue reveals its true rarity, as such pieces are among the rarest in the series.

    Consignor Commentary: One of the most difficult dates in the series to find in Gem. This coin is not quite as colorful as others in this set, and darker in toning, but well-struck for an issue that often lacks sharp details. This is the Eliasberg coin, certainly a candidate for finest known.

    Provenance: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection (Bowers & Merena, 4/1997), lot 1605; Philadelphia Signature (Heritage, 8/2000), lot 5856.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 23ZP, PCGS# 5660)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
