    1913 Barber Quarter, MS66
    Vibrant, Frosty Luster

    1913 25C MS66 PCGS. CAC. This well-preserved example displays vibrant, frosty mint luster, while just a hint of pale golden toning warms each side. The strike is essentially sharp throughout, though some minor weakness is noted on the upper-right corner and lower point of the shield.

    Population Data (5/14): Only seven coins are certified in MS66 by PCGS and NGC combined. Four are numerically finer.

    Heritage Commentary: From a mintage of only 484,000 pieces, few Premium Gem 1913 quarters were saved at the time of issue. Today a mere handful survive in MS66. The 1913 is the rarest Barber quarter from the Philadelphia Mint.

    Consignor Commentary: 1913 is the lone Philadelphia date after 1905 not to be priced generically -- with good reason. Between the services there are only four in MS67 and seven in MS66, pretty slim pickings. The coin presented is a white blazer as they say. There are no marks or other distractions to mar the surfaces. I'm still entranced by the reason why a depressed line appears on these late-date coins below Liberty's ear.

    Provenance: Palm Beach Signature (Heritage, 11/2004), lot 6572; Pinnacle Rarities; purchased by the present consignor in January 2005.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23ZU, PCGS# 5664)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
