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 $750 New November 1! Gem Original, Reflective Cartwheel Luster, Rich Olive Gold Patina, Complete Strike, Faint Rub, Conservative Grading. Let's open the description for this gem original 1892-S Barber quarter with a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation. Really, this piece is an absolutely gem at the AU55 grade level. Obverse fields are reflective while the reverse is more on the frosty side. Luster on both sides provides active cartwheels under a bright light. I'm having considerable fun viewing this piece and really don't wish to move to the next quarter in the queue. Strike is fully executed with high relief stars and crisp reverse tail feathers. There are no blemishes whatsoever. Under a 10x loupe, there is faint rub that could from Dansco slide in a bookshelf album. If that is the case, then AU58 is the accurate grade. I'm calling this one conservative graded as housed in new 2015 style PCGS holder. For the collector that wants only the best in their collections.

Surfaces are strictly original and covered with uniform gray patina that includes faint olive hues on the reverse. Strike is well executed with all tail feathers visibile.

New October 9! Gem Original, Brilliant Cartwheel Luster, Gorgeous Aquamarine-Blue Toning, Hammer Strike, Conservative Grading, Montana Collection. 10% Price Reduction October 8, 2018. 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 $295 New November 1! Better Date, Choice Original, Gray-Gold Patina, Circulated Cameo Eye Appeal, Accurately Graded. The 1896 New Orlean Seated quarter mintage is reported at 1,484,000 with the issue circulating heavily during the turn of the century. PCGS grade populations above VG quality drop off in the teens indicating few survivors. This example is fully choice and should immediately head to CAC for review. Circulated cameo eye appeal is immediate evident resulting from darker gray fields that contrast with lighter golden shades. A strictly original example with nearly blemish free surfaces. There is one ancient obverse line on the neck that is completely toned. I saw this line during a buying session and believe it is inconsequential against the overall eye appeal and natural toning. Accurately graded and housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder. A Fall 2018 Baltimore show new purchase that needs to find a home.

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.
