    1896-S Barber Quarter, VF35
    Low-Mintage Key

    1896-S 25C VF35 PCGS. There was little numismatic interest in branch mint issues in 1896 and few contemporary collectors saved an example of the San Francisco Mint quarter that year, despite the low mintage of 188,039 pieces. Accordingly, the 1896-S is a sought-after key to the series today and most examples seen are in lower circulated grades. This Choice VF specimen exhibits light-to-moderate wear on the devices, but LIBERTY remains bold. The pleasing lavender-gray surfaces are lightly abraded. Housed in a green label holder.(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 23Y9, PCGS# 5615)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
