1898 25C MS67

CERTIFICATION#: 06546395
PCGS#: 5619

Owner's Comments

A monster 1898 quarter, with superb surfaces and deep beautiful original color. The reverse is particularly compelling, but the obverse stands out beautifully as well. This coin appeared at auction in a first generation NGC MS67 holder, and was regraded MS68 by NGC shortly thereafter. However, the Sunnywood Collection is 100% certified by PCGS (among other reasons, we appreciate PCGS's consistency and accuracy, and we prefer to have all matching holders), so we endured the one point downgrade to get the coin into a PCGS holder. Ah, the games we must play!! Perhaps someday the coin will be accorded the MS68 grade by PCGS as well. [NGC MS68]
