    Premium Gem 1913-S Barber Quarter
    Sought-After, Low-Mintage Issue

    1913-S 25C MS66 PCGS. CAC. Always in demand because of its series-low mintage of 40,000 pieces, the 1913-S is one of the keys to a collection of Barber quarters. Fortunately, some superior examples, like the present coin, were saved by collectors at the time of issue. Current population data shows PCGS has certified 11 coins in MS66, with four finer; while NGC has graded only six Premium Gems, with four finer (6/10).
    The present coin is a sharply struck Premium Gem, with bright, frosty mint luster. This example is from a late state of the die, showing a die crack from the edge, through the 3 in the date, to the point of the bust. Another short crack shows on Liberty's bust, below the ear and along the jawline. The outstanding eye appeal is confirmed by the CAC sticker. Housed in an old green label holder.
    From The Dr. Brandon Smith Collection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 23ZW, PCGS# 5666)

    Weight: 6.25 grams
