    Description

    1937 Washington Quarter, MS65
    Doubled Die Obverse

    1937 25C Doubled Die Obverse, FS-101, MS65 PCGS. This elusive Guide Book variety exhibits bold die doubling on all obverse elements, most obvious on the date, IN GOD WE TRUST, and the tip of Washington's nose. This variety is one of the most sought-after in the entire series, but is very seldom found, especially in Mint State. PCGS has attributed only 24 Uncirculated pieces, with just two in this grade and two numerically finer; NGC has only seen five Mint State examples, with none finer than MS64 (10/14). The present coin displays satiny golden luster, with a couple deep amber areas on Washington's neck and the along the lower obverse border. A small mark behind the eye is the only abrasions of note, and the strike is sharply executed. An attractive, high-end example of this important doubled die variety. (NGC ID# 49ES, Variety PCGS# 145291, Base PCGS# 95803)

    Weight: 6.25 grams
