||QUARTER DOLLARS - BARBER LIBERTY HEAD
||NGC MS 67
I must admit this coin caused me to pay attention to Liberty's ear for the first time (I know, I know I don't get the big picture). This coin has a series of roller marks within the ear, and the ear itself has a wide orifice. In looking over the series I found that what should be a standard design element shows quite a bit of variation from very wide (a la 1895-O) to almost no opening at all (1906-D,1907-D). The coin seems consistent with its grade. Smoothly toned with the only mark a lint mark dropping away from Liberty's ear like a dangling earring. Bought directly from Larry Whitlow in April, 2001.
