    The Finest Certified 1932-D Quarter--PCGS MS66

    1932-D 25C MS66 PCGS. It is well known that the '32-D quarter is the key issue in the Washington Quarter series. It has the second lowest mintage with only 436,800 pieces struck. That is a small number relative to other mintages in the series, but one would think that it is still high enough for quite a few high grade examples to have survived. After all, it is a modern coin, its mintage was widely known at the time of issue, and dealers at the time had roll quantities of almost any issue from the 1890s to date. But for some unknown reason, "high grade" and "1932-D Quarters" do not generally go together. This is the only MS 66 (or finer) specimen certified by the two major grading services (6/01).
    The surfaces are wonderfully clean and free from the abrasions that usually plague this issue. The reverse is brilliant. The obverse, on the other hand, is a different story altogether. The center appears to be brilliant but close examination reveals a pale pinkish patina that is surrounded at the margin by a golden-olive band of toning that also contains occasional flecks of scarlet. Exceptional quality. Look for this coin to raise eyebrows when it is sold and expect a new record price for a '32-D. (NGC ID# 2448, PCGS# 5791)
