    Superb Gem 1888 Quarter Dollar, MS68

    1888 25C MS68 NGC. Only 10,000 business strikes were coined, and examples are seldom seen, although they are usually frosty and lustrous when they are encountered. Breen commented that this date was less hoarded than some of the early quarter dollars in the 1880s. Most business strike examples are found in or near Mint State grades, although almost never like the present specimen. This is an amazing Superb Gem with ivory color at the center of the obverse, surrounded by russet, sea-green, and gold toning. The reverse is similar with mostly rose color at the centers, framed by teal and gold. The pattern of toning is reminiscent of pieces from old time collections. Census: 3 in 68, 0 finer (6/06).
    From The Belle Glade Collection.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 23VL, PCGS# 5520)
