    Premium Gem 1925-D Quarter Eagle
    Only One Coin Certified Finer

    1925-D $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. CAC. No quarter eagles were produced for more than a decade after 1915, so the Denver Mint produced a large mintage of 578,000 coins in 1925. The issue is easy to locate in lower grades, but the availability falls off quickly above the Gem level. Currently, PCGS has certified only 30 coins in MS66, with none finer, while NGC has graded 40 Premium Gems, with two examples in MS66 , and a single specimen in MS67 (6/11). The centers of this Premium Gem are sharply struck, with a hint of softness on the peripheral devices, including the mintmark. The surfaces are unevenly patinated in attractive rose-gold with lilac interspersed, and the only mark visible to the naked eye is a tiny nick in the obverse field near the bridge of the nose.
