    Stunning MS67 1932 Washington Quarter
    Tied for Finest at PCGS With One Other

    1932 25C MS67 PCGS. This stunning Superb Gem 1932 Washington quarter would certainly make a fine start to a top-drawer Registry Set, and we mean that in every conceivable way: It is aesthetically and numerically among the finest available -- one of only two in this grade at PCGS, with none finer (3/12).
    It is also, of course, the opening salvo of what would turn out to be a long-running series. The Washington quarter sprang to life in the depths of the Depression to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of America's first (and among the most illustrious) president, George Washington (1732-1799). (The original plan called for a commemorative Washington half dollar, but the concept evolved to the quarter dollar in 1931, as no half dollars had been struck since 1929 and no more would be made until 1933.) The Washington quarter debuted in 1932, replacing the Standing Liberty design that some felt to be unsatisfactory.
    The obverse of this Superb Gem features some of the most attractive patina we ever recall seeing on a silver coin. The central jade-to-aqua tones are the most dominant, moving outward to deep amber and reddish hues. The reverse features a silver-gold center, radiating outward to amber and blue tinges. Generous luster shows on both sides, and a small mark on Washington's neck is noticeable merely because the surfaces elsewhere are virtually contact-free. A piece for the finest Registry Set.
