    1868-S Quarter, 'Creamy' MS64
    Few Survive in High Grade

    1868-S 25C MS64 PCGS. CAC. Larry Briggs (1991) characterizes the mint luster on Uncirculated 1868-S quarters as "creamy." And that certainly describes the surfaces of this near-Gem. The mintage was a substantial 96,000 pieces, but as with most Western silver coins they were extensively used in the channels of commerce and few were preserved by collectors. This issue is known for weakness of strike on the head of Liberty and upper stars, which is readily apparent on this example. Each side displays a slight accent of golden patina, and there are no singularly mentionable abrasions on this upper-end quarter. Population: 4 in 64, 1 finer (6/13).(Registry values: P7) (NGC ID# 23UG, PCGS# 5473)
