    Appealing Gem 1932-D Quarter
    Only One Graded Finer at PCGS

    1932-D 25C MS65 PCGS. While the 1932-D and 1932-S Washington quarters are often viewed as birds of a feather, knowledgeable collectors and dealers know that the two issues perhaps share more similarities than differences. For example, in all Mint State grades there are noticeably fewer PCGS-certified specimens of the 1932-D than of the 1932-S, a disparity that in MS64 approaches a ratio of 2:1. In Gem condition, the grade of the present example, there are 63 pieces at PCGS, compared to 92 of the 1932-S, and in the ultimate grade of MS66, there is but a single 1932-D at that service, while there are four 1932-S coins (6/08). While the 1932-S, especially in MS64 and lower grades, has seen some marked price fluctuations the past few months, the price for the 1932-D has held up quite nicely.
    The situation is much the same with NGC-certified pieces, where at the higher Mint State levels the divergence in the numbers of graded 1932-D versus 1932-S coins is even more remarkable.
    This eye-appealing piece is largely brilliant with radiant cartwheel luster, and just a few glints of silver-gold on the obverse high points. The piece is notably free of pesky abrasions on both sides, and aptly deserving of its Gem ranking. Population: 63 in 65, 1 finer (6/08).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 2448, PCGS# 5791)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
