    Exceptional 1932-D Gem Quarter

    1932-D 25C MS65 NGC. Although there are no major rarities in the Washington quarter series, the 1932-D and 1932-S issues are scarce in Mint State grades, and highly elusive in Gem quality. These coins were designed by John Flanagan, who was the artist chosen by Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon, even though Laura Gardin Fraser won the actual design competition. Fraser is best known in numismatics as the designer of the Alabama, Grant, and Vancouver half dollars, as well as the Philippines coins honoring General Douglas MacArthur. She was the wife of James Earle Fraser of Buffalo nickel fame. John Flanagan was once a student of Augustus Saint-Gaudens and was a sculptor in New York City. The Washington quarter is his only coin design, although he was also commissioned for a few medallic issues.
    This lovely Gem quality example is sharply defined with attractive heather toning over frosty silver luster on the obverse. The reverse has light gold color with frosty luster also. The surfaces have a few tiny marks, mostly hidden in the devices, but these hardly detract. Census: 16 in 65, 0 finer (7/07).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 2448, PCGS# 5791)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
