19th century Barber quarter type coin
Rich rainbow toning graces both sides of this beautifully preserved gem! Very scarce as most of these were exported to the Philippines at the time of issue and few survive in mint state.
Gorgeous premium Gem surfaces are vividly toned over lively satin luster. The obverse is splashed with iridescent powder blue, reddish-apricot and silver-olive, most vivid at the periphery. The central reverse is close to brilliant, framed in mottled peripheral iridescence in pale olive, blue and reddish-gold. The pristine-looking surfaces support a full strike. Only 708,000 1899-S quarters were struck, and like most San Francisco Mint issues before it in the Barber series, the date circulated heavily in the bustling West Coast economy of the time. That Gems of most of these early date S-Mint Barber quarter issues exist is more a matter of chance than of intention.
A tougher O-mint that's difficult to find in choice grades. Wholly natural and nice.
