Lot Description
1893 25C Isabella Quarter MS67+ PCGS. CAC. The Isabella quarters of 1893 and Lafayette dollars of 1900 are the only two of those respective denominations from the classic era of U.S. commemoratives, and accordingly they appeal to a wider audience that might not necessarily consider collecting "one of everything." This top-flight piece has been mounted reverse-forward in the PCGS slab, perhaps to show off the incredible patina that is nonetheless even more lovely on that side, aqua and mint in the centers ceding to amber, russet, and violet at the rims. The strike is full throughout. A piece that is one of a kind. Population: 2 in 67+, 4 finer (6/11).
