    1914-D Barber Quarter, MS67
    Among the Finest Known

    1914-D 25C MS67 PCGS. CAC. Radiant mint luster is only the most outstanding feature of this beautiful D-mint Superb Gem, as closer inspection reveals surfaces that are as smooth as the day this piece left the coining press. Both sides have acquired a subtle overlay of ice-blue and lavender-gray toning somewhat more noticeable over the obverse. An exceptional coin in all regards.

    Population Data (7/14): The 1914-D is easily obtainable as a date, but is conditionally rare at the MS67 grade level; PCGS reports three Superb Gems, one the famous Eliasberg specimen, while NGC has seen only one, the Hugon coin. None are graded finer.

    Heritage Commentary: David Lawrence calls this issue a common date, though its status as such cuts off sharply at the MS66 grade level, where it becomes genuinely rare.

    Consignor Commentary: The Eliasberg coin is also in this collection, yet I elected to post this coin in the Registry Set over its more famous brother. I chose this coin for its unblemished surfaces and smooth steel-gray toning (like a blanket, said its catalog listing).

    Provenance: Palm Beach Signature (Heritage, 11/2004), lot 6577.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 23ZY, PCGS# 5668)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
