    Exceptional Key Issue 1913-S Quarter, MS66

    1913-S 25C MS66 PCGS. CAC. The 1913-S is one of the key dates to this series and a very rare coin in any Gem or higher grade, as seen here. The surfaces are bright and lustrous, with a blush of light gold toning just starting to form. Sharply impressed overall, the only weakness seen is on the lower right (facing) claw of the eagle and on the fletchings of the arrows. With a mintage of 40,000 pieces, it is easy to see why this coin is scarce. Few were saved from circulation, and this date is notoriously difficult to find in mint condition. This regal Premium Gem should be of interest to many collectors. It is identifiable by a tiny tick on the top of Liberty's cap just above the fold. Interesting clash marks are noted down from Liberty's ear from clashing with the reverse die (the eagle's neck is outlined on Liberty's neck), and a minor die crack extends from the rim up through the base of the 3 in the date up to the truncation of Liberty's neck and beyond nearly reaching star 13. An outstanding opportunity for the specialist to obtain one of the most difficult coins in this series. Population: 11 in 66, 4 finer (3/10).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 23ZW, PCGS# 5666)

    Weight: 6.25 grams
