Lot Description
1917-S 25C Type One MS67 Full Head NGC. This piece demonstrates outstanding quality and is tied with an illustrious group for the finest graded of the issue. Note the radiant luster in the fields and the curious mattelike texture seen on many 1916 and 1917 quarters. The textured luster is particularly prevalent on the obverse, less so in the reverse fields. The strike is bold--quite close to full--with strong definition on the shield, date, knee, breast, and other high points. This Superb Gem is virtually brilliant, but a trace of gold appears on the lower reverse field. As nice as this date is ever found; the combined NGC and PCGS population data show 27 pieces so graded, with none finer (11/09). From The Five Point Collection.
