    1913-D Quarter, MS67
    Tied for Finest Known, Ex: Eliasberg

    1913-D 25C MS67 NGC. Ex: Eliasberg. Both sides display unimpaired, satiny luster with noticeable brightness in the fields. The surfaces are free of post-production contact. The otherwise light, silver-gray patina yields to mottled golden-tan shades over the reverse. Some typical strike weakness appears on the eagle's right (facing) talons.

    Population Data (9/15): The Eliasberg coin is tied with one other as the finest at NGC; the finest at PCGS are also two coins in MS67.

    Heritage Commentary: Despite a mintage of more than 1.4 million coins, the 1913-D quarter is seldom available in Gem or finer condition and is extremely rare at the Superb Gem level.

    Consignor Commentary: The Eliasberg coin, lightly toned and original. The Eliasberg catalog notes that this is an unusually plain coin, devoid of spots and die cracks, and attributes this to the coin being an early strike. The catalog also notes the coin is definitely Condition Census, a claim that still holds as it is one of four in MS67 tied at the top of the certified population charts.

    Provenance: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection (Bowers & Merena, 4/1997), lot 1610; Philadelphia Signature (Heritage, 8/2000), lot 5859; purchased from David Lawrence Rare Coins (11/2001).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23ZV, PCGS# 5665)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
