||QUARTER DOLLARS - BARBER LIBERTY HEAD
||25C 1899 O
||NGC MS 67
A more common date than one might at first think. The Feigenbaums in their Complete Guide to Barber Coinage make its rarity just about average for the series. Still this is the only coin graded MS-67 by NGC, and PCGS has also managed to locate just one 67. Heavily but not quite evenly toned with its luster subdued causes me to rate this coin just average for the grade. There are a couple of interesting die breaks on the obverse. One is completely across the bottom of Liberty's neck. Another connects the point of Liberty's bust to star 13 and on below star 12 to the dentils. Bought directly from Larry Hanks in January, 1999.
