Appealing 1881 Condition Rarity Quarter, MS681881 25C MS68 PCGS. The 1881 quarter is a low mintage date of 12,000 circulation strikes, and is scarce in all grades. It is an important condition rarity in Superb Gem, and extremely rare in the lofty grade of MS68, that of the present offering. PCGS and NGC have each seen one such example, and none finer.
The silky silver-gray surfaces exude pleasing luster, and display occasional wisps of nearly imperceptible tan color. A solid strike leaves crisp definition on the design elements, including most of the star centers. The latter are usually flatly struck. The near pristine surfaces reveal just a couple of unobtrusive marks.
