    Description

    1943-S Quarter, MS66+
    Doubled Die Obverse

    1943-S 25C Doubled Die Obverse, FS-101, MS66+ PCGS. CAC. This is a long-popular Guide Book variety, showing bold die doubling on the date, IN GOD WE TRUST, and LIBERTY. The portrait shows a lesser spread save for the designer's initials, which are clearly doubled. PCGS has seen a limited number of Mint State pieces, primarily below MS65. In MS66, FS-101 is rare, and no Superb Gems are yet attributed at that service. This Plus-graded Premium Gem is tied for the finest at PCGS. Frosty luster has traces of champagne toning, and the design elements are boldly rendered. No major abrasions are observed. For Registry purposes, this CAC-endorsed Premium Gem is impossible to surpass in a PCGS holder. Population: 12 in 66 (2 in 66+), 0 finer (2/16). (NGC ID# 2457, Variety PCGS# 145154, Base PCGS# 5823)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
