    Magnificently Toned 1946-S Quarter
    PCGS-Leading MS68

    1946-S 25C MS68 PCGS Secure. CAC. This dazzling MS68 example of an early postwar San Francisco issue exemplifies the collection's mix of high technical grade and eye-appealing charm. Delicately frosted high points give way to rolling cartwheel luster through the fields. Blue-to-gray overtones dominate the interiors, while the margins show gold to reddish-orange patina, those hues covering more of the reverse. A minuscule curving scrape to the left of the eagle's beak is one of the few post-striking faults visible to the unaided eye, and that only with searching. Population: 4 in 68, 0 finer (11/12).
