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.

Gem Original, Brilliant Cartwheel Luster, Gorgeous Aquamarine-Blue Toning, Hammer Strike, Conservative Grading, Montana Collection. The Montana Collection is new to the GFRC community and presents a top quality array of early silver type coins. All were purchased from two sources during the past ten years; Aspen Park Rare Coins and HLRC. Both dealers are well known for offering top quality coins. This only Barber coin from the Montana Collection is this amazing 1894-S Barber quarter that is an outright gem. Incredible satiny cartwheel luster tickles the eyes when viewed under a light source. Obverse toning is about 90% transparent leading to vibrant luster that accentuates aquamarine, sky blue, rose and gold colors. The colors are intermixed rather than banded and probably the result of being exposed to a felt or velvet material in a coin cabinet. The reverse patina is thicker and less transparent to the underlying luster but still the cartwheel effect is active. Conservatively graded and housed in old PCGS blue label holder with standard ring insert. A better early date in the Barber quarter series and worthy of a sophisticated collection. The current PCGS guide price is $1250 and this piece is heads and shoulders above those selling recently in the high three figures at auction.

Choice $350 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.

The obverse colors suggest direct contact with a piece of velvet or felt. Strike is hammered with nicely rounded stars and fully impressed eagle feathers. Having said all this, it is the dazzling cartwheel luster that is the primary attraction as I could hold this quarter under a bright light for several minutes and watch the dancing light and reflections. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder with no CAC attempt. Another fine numismatic property from the Ft. Lauderdale Collection. Please note that my Nikon camera was overwhelmed by the bold frosty luster coupled with the bright rose and blue patina leading to obverse image that is not a crisp representation.
