    Spectacular 1951-S Quarter, MS68 NGC

    1951-S 25C MS68 NGC. The 1951-S quarter is downright rare in the lofty grade of MS68. To date, NGC and PCGS have certified a total of eight examples in this level of preservation, and none finer. This specimen displays dazzling luster and spectacular toning. The obverse shows waves of forest-green, lavender, crimson, and orange-gold coloration in the left (facing) obverse field, replaced by dappled orange and lavender in the remaining areas of this side. The reverse contains deep, mottled olive-green, lavender, and gold patination. The design elements are well impressed, and near-pristine surfaces are devoid of significant abrasions. Census: 7 in 68, 0 finer (1/06).
    From The Houston Collection of Washington Quarters.(Registry values: N491) (NGC ID# 245Y, PCGS# 5848)
