    The Ultimate 1940 Washington Quarter
    MS68, Sole Finest Certified

    1940 25C MS68 PCGS Secure. CAC. This is the only MS68 example of the 1940 Washington quarter so graded by NGC or PCGS (11/12). As such, it is the ultimate "stopper" for high-end Registry Set collectors of both services. Fortunately for collectors who like their coins attractive in addition to high-grade, this also is an eye-appealing example with bounteous semifrosted luster and attractive partial patina. Gold, orange, and reddish-brown toning appears at the upper obverse and lower reverse, while the remainder of the piece is silver or faintly toned gray. As expected of the grade, both sides are almost flawless.
