    1944-S Quarter, MS68, One of Three at PCGS
    With Doubled Die Reverse

    1944-S 25C MS68 PCGS. CONECA DDR-001. Knob S. This coin in its previous appearance with us was unlisted in the Cherrypickers' Guide, fourth edition, volume II, and we hoped it might be in the new fifth edition, volume II, but it is not. It certainly deserves to be; the reverse die doubling is impressive, seen as extreme thickness on all peripheral letters, a sort of Art Deco effect. This piece is, in addition, one of only three examples of the 1944-S in this top grade at PCGS, as it was three years ago in its last offering (3/12). The borders are beautifully toned in bands of orange-red, sky-blue, and lemon-gold, leaving a window of brilliance at the centers.
