    1901-S Quarter, AG3
    Rare Low Mintage Issue

    1901-S 25C AG3 PCGS. The 1901-S is the rarest Barber quarter regular issue, even though the 1913-S has a lower mintage. One possible explanation is the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and subsequent fire. What is known is that most 1901-S survivors are heavily circulated. More than one-third of the PCGS population for the issue is AG3, and almost 90% of the population is in grades below Fine 12. The present example has a clear date and mintmark. A few letters in E PLURIBUS UNUM are visible, and every letter in the reverse peripheral legend is present, though partial. The cream-gray surfaces are unmarked save for a trio of pinscratches below Liberty's chin, and a slender diagonal mark on her jaw.
    From The Ed Leigh McMillan Collection. (Registry values: N1)
