    1903-O Barber Quarter, MS67
    Tied for Finest Known

    1903-O 25C MS67 PCGS. David Lawrence once regarded the 1903-O as being on par with the 1896-S in Gem condition. Today, the population data reveals the former to be slightly more available than the latter in high grades, but the two issues are more alike than the wide price disparity would suggest.

    This 1903-O is tied with one other Superb Gem as the finest known, a distinction that makes it unsurpassed as a Registry coin. Richly toned surfaces exhibit well-defined motifs and no obvious marks concealed beneath a layer of olive, gold, violet, and blue patina. An exemplary example. We have not handled the other MS67 PCGS coin since Part III of the Eugene H. Gardner Collection (Heritage, 5/2015). Population: 2 in 67, 0 finer (11/19).
    From The Watermark Collection. (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 23YW, PCGS# 5635)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
