    Miraculous MS68 1939 Washington Quarter

    1939 25C MS68 PCGS. CAC. With a mintage exceeding 33.5 million pieces, the 1939 quarter is not at the forefront of collectors' minds when they consider conditional rarities in the Washington quarter set. However, such is the case with the present 1939-dated piece in MS68, one of only three coins so graded at PCGS, with none finer, and three others at NGC, again with none finer (6/08). In fact, for the entire series PCGS has only certified 36 silver Washington quarters, regardless of date and mintmark, in MS68.
    This piece offers expectedly splendid eye appeal, with phenomenal cartwheel luster emanating from each side. a light kiss of yellow-gold rings the periphery, and a loupe reveals only considerable die polishing lines on the reverse, along with some die cracks through some of the letter tops. A miraculous coin for the finest date assembly or Registry Set.(Registry values: N491) (NGC ID# 44KU, PCGS# 5808)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
