    Single Finest NGC-Certified
    MS68 ★ 1888 Seated Quarter

    1888 25C MS68 ★ NGC. NGC has certified four 1888 quarters as MS68, but within that group, only the present lot has received a Star designation from NGC. None have been certified above MS68, and PCGS has yet to certify any above MS67. Thus, this beautiful Seated quarter can stake a claim to the honor of single finest certified. Bands of ocean-blue and autumn-gold encroach upon the untoned centers. The strike is precise aside from a few upper star centers. The surfaces are immaculate, as if the piece was carefully lifted from the dies with a gloved hand and placed immediately into the fastidiously maintained holdings of a family collection, where it remained for generations prior to its encapsulation by NGC.(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23VL, PCGS# 5520)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
