1896-S 25c NGC AU53

DLRC #: 312090 // PCGS #: 5615

Wow! A choice AU of this impossible issue. Medium toning overall with sharp details, this is as nice an UA as you could hope for on this key date. The last AU in auction was a PCGS AU53 that sold for $8343 (DLRC: 1/09). No other AU's are recorded as sold at auction in the past 3-4 years. A classic key date Barber quarter. One of the 'big 3' keys along with the 1901-S and 1913-S.
