    Gem 1932-D Washington Quarter
    Prized Key to the Series

    1932-D 25C MS65 PCGS. CAC. The "classic" Washington quarter silver series from 1932 to 1964 is one that a new generation of collectors has moved into backwards, so to speak. The wild popularity and success of the Statehood quarter series drew literally millions of new collectors into numismatics, many of them casual -- but a percentage became quite serious. Those collectors have now expanded their acquisitions backward into the clad issues of 1965-later, as well as the even-earlier silver pieces. But the 1932-D remains the stopper of the series for those new collectors. The few Gems available are the capstone for the finest Registry Sets as well as the finest grade obtainable. The present example boasts impressive mint luster over near-brilliant surfaces. Close examination shows a slight hint of red and lilac on each side. A few tiny abrasions on the eagle's legs are undistracting and consistent with the grade. A prized example of the key-date Washington quarter. Population: 63 in 65, 1 finer (1/12).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 2448, PCGS# 5791)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
