    1878-S Quarter, MS65
    Unimprovable Quality

    1878-S 25C MS65 NGC. A confluence of factors -- the Mint Act of 1871, which required the Mint to redeem older minor coins in any quantity, as well as the Bland-Allison Act of 1878, mandating the coinage of millions of silver dollars per month from domestic sources -- was responsible for the low mintages of minor silver denominations, in particular, for the later 1870s and lasting until about 1890. The rarity of the 1878-S quarter issue is overshadowed by that of its big brother the half dollar, but only 140,000 pieces were struck, and Gems are seldom seen. This NGC-certified MS65 piece shows some pinkish-lilac accents complementing silvery devices with luxuriant mint frost on both sides. The strike is sharp, and contact evidence is minimal. A great-looking coin that will be quite difficult to improve upon. Census: 4 in 65, 0 finer (12/13).(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 23VA, PCGS# 5510)
