Stack's Bowers Auction March 2020 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction Mar-2020 Finest Certified 1907-S Barber Quarter The Eliasberg-Pogue Specimen 1907-S Barber Quarter. MS-68 (PCGS). CAC. Here is a Superb Gem 1907-S that challenges perfection. Warm rose-gray patina is seen on both sides, with a mixture of light blue and iridescent gold at the borders. Sharply struck and very beautiful, this is as pretty a Barber quarter as could be hoped for! As the finest certified for the issue at PCGS and NGC, and likely the finest known, this is a coin for the connoisseur. The 1907-S is similar to many mintmarked issues in the Barber quarter series, with a lower mintage that saw extensive commercial use. The typical survivor is well worn and grades no finer than VF, with even EF and AU examples scarce. Mint State coins are rare in all grades; the small number of Superb Gems known to PCGS and NGC represent the finest available to today's discerning numismatists. The Eliasberg-Pogue provenance adds further desirability for this remarkable MS-68. Estimate: $20,000 - $25,000. Provenance: From our (Bowers and Merena's) sale of the Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection, April 1997, lot 1593; Heritage's FUN Signature Sale of January 2005, lot 4147. PCGS Population: 1; 0 finer. CAC Population: 1; 0. PCGS# 5648. NGC ID: 23ZB.
