    Phenomenal MS67 1883 Hawaiian Quarter

    1883 25C Hawaii Quarter MS67 NGC. CAC. In 1874, Secretary of State James G. Blaine publicly announced that Hawaii was of such importance to the safety of the United States that no other nation could be allowed to have her. Banker and sugar tycoon Claus Spreckels later proposed to the king that the United States strike coins for the islands, and proceeded to draw sketches for the silver coins. The four denominations were designed by Charles Barber and struck on standard U.S. planchets, with the proofs made at Philadelphia and the business strikes coined at San Francisco. While easily found in circulated grades and even the lower conditions of Mint State, we rarely have the opportunity to offer an MS67 quarter. The surfaces on this coin are phenomenal. They show lovely mint frost with a slightly reflective sheen--similar to quarters and halves struck in the Mint in the 1880s. There is just a bit of light golden toning on the obverse and reverse of this memorable Hawaiian quarter. Census: 7 in 67, 0 finer (4/08). (NGC ID# 2C58, PCGS# 10987)
