1896-S 25c PCGS/CAC VF30

DLRC #: 361856 // PCGS #: 5615

Classic key date Barber quarter. One of the 'big 3' keys along with the 1901-S and 1913-S. Very attractive example with a fully sharp Liberty AND the complete line under the word Liberty, which we usually use to define an XF! In this case, PCGS correctly observed that there was ample wear elsewhere and designated the coin a VF30. A great pickup for the Barber specialist as VF's of this date are few and far between. CAC approved for quality and eye appeal. CAC is a third party grading service that grades the grading services (PCGS & NGC) and only approves the best coins in holders. CAC coins have been bringing significant premiums at auctions as more and more collectors are demanding the sticker before they buy.
