Gem $2550 Superb Gem, Gorgeous Eye Appeal, Vibrant Cartwheel Luster, Hammered Strike. What an eye catching Barber quarter that belong in the finest of type sets! A first year of issue superb gem that is a pleasure to have in GFRC inventory. Let's start with the luster. Bright, vibrant and swirling are the best descriptors for both obverse and reverse cartwheel luster. Transparent aquamarine and gold patina floats on the obverse surface and is enhanced by the cartwheel luster. Then there is the reverse....a deep blue toning ring covers the legend and quickly transitions to orange gold at the center. Strike is hammered with no weakness whatsoever. Accurately graded at the MS66+ level. In hand inspection is definitely required to appreciate the eye appeal as GFRC photography is much too limiting. My images are unable to capture the obverse luster and the contrast between deep blue reverse rims and lightly toned center also presented a special challenge. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with CAC approval. This lovely Barber quarter has it all; eye appeal, strike, vibrant luster and CAC approval.

New June 25! Gorgeous Slider, Vibrant Satiny Luster, Large Die Chip at IN GOD, Twin Lakes Collection. This 1892-O Barber quarter offering is not your average coin in a typical PCGS AU58 holder. Rather, this is a gorgeous offering with brilliant satiny luster, shimmering cartwheels, and a hammered strike. Why this lovely Barber is graded AU58 and not full MS62 is beyond me as Mint State eye appeal is obvious. Also adding to the charm are dual obverse die chips. The larger die chip is found below IN GOD while the second is seen at the lower left tip of the bust by the 1 digit. A super offering from the Twin Lakes Collection that warrants MS62 level pricing. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder. I guarantee that the buyer will be fully satisfied with the purchase.

Choice $320 Flashy Cartwheel Luster, Golden Blue Rims, Choice Surfaces. An eye catching Barber quarter that would be ideal for a mint state Dansco or Whitman type set. Cartwheel luster swirls throughout the surfaces and tickles the eyes. The luster is nicely framed by copper gold and blue shades at the obverse and reverse rims. I believe my grading is conservative since this Barber quarter is raw. Much lower quality has been seen in MS63 TPG holders. If the coin in the GFRC images is appealing, then this one will be stunning once in hand.

Original $215 Original, Collector-Grade, Twin Lakes Collection.. The coin exhibits wear at the high points consistent with the grade and is medium toned with ocassional crust about the stars, legend, and date. All of the Barber coinage was struck at four different Mints - Philadelphia, San Francisco, New Orleans, and, toward the end of the series, at Denver as well. The New Orleans Mint was notorious for poorly struck coins in the Liberty Seated series, but these problems were largely resolved by 1892 with the introduction of Barber coinage. This piece is an excellent representation of the New Orleans Mint for the period, a welll-struck, original example that brings a tiny piece of New Orleans from the past to the present day. A quality AU58 set offering from the Twin Lakes Collection.

Gem $1150 Gem Original, Light Olive Gray Patina, Luster and Eye Appeal. A fitting partner to the 1908 PCGS MS63 CAC quarter also listed here. This is a gem piece as far as I'm concerned. Surfaces are perfectly original and have a patina to be expected after 100+ years of proper storage. Luster is cartwheel in nature under bright light and a bit attenuated due to the thick patina. Strike is complete and there are absolutely no blemishes. The soft luster is responsibile for the assigned MS63 grade; which is accurate. CAC approval rewards the originality. Fresh to market from a New England collection and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder.
