    Description

    MS68 1947-S Washington Quarter
    Exceptional Toning

    1947-S 25C MS68 PCGS. Ex: Stella Colbert. A spectacularly toned example that has alternating orange, ruby-red, powder-blue, and aquamarine colors around wide margins, which in turn frame mostly brilliant centers. This lustrous and beautifully preserved Superb Gem is a prize for the toning enthusiast. The 1947-S is a low mintage issue, since only 5.5 million pieces were produced, and this high-grade example should be of great interest to the Registry Set collector. This is the first time an MS68 has been offered at public auction since a late 2008 offering by Teletrade, and this is the first example we have offered since October, 2006. Population: 3 in 68, 0 finer (3/10).(Registry values: N491) (NGC ID# 245K, PCGS# 5835)

    Weight: 6.25 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
