This meticulously produced, carefully preserved, and beautifully toned specimen epitomizes the quality and eye appeal that collectors strive for. We also owned another 1894 PCGS MS66 with beautiful original toning, which was placed (along with many other duplicate Barber quarters from Sunnywood) in the collection of our friend Dr. Steven Duckor. It was so hard to choose which one to keep, and which one to part with !! A rare treat from Heritage's 2005 ANA Signature Sale, Lot 6053.
The 1894 Barber Quarter is one of the more common dates in the series, as many examples were struck for this date. In uncirculated condition they are scarce in all grades. Especially in MS65 condition or higher. MS66 examples are even harder to find. Anything grading higher than MS66 is very rare.
