||QUARTER DOLLARS - BARBER LIBERTY HEAD
||NGC MS 66
For a common date it took me several tries to find a coin which satisfied my desire to find a coin with good color and eye appeal. There are twenty-one coins graded MS-66 by the services, and I must have gone through a half dozen before settling on this one. There are two coins graded higher which I have not seen, a MS-68 at each service. There are no MS-67s. The coin has the luster and eye appeal of a higher grade, but there are several light lines in the field behind Liberty's cap on the obverse accounting for the assigned grade. Bought from a Heritage auction in May, 2005, lot 6936.
