Lot Description
1893 25C Isabella Quarter MS66 NGC. Glints of gold, emerald, and sapphire on the obverse complement a dash of added pinkish-orange on the reverse, and the needle-sharp strike adds to the enormous eye appeal on this lovely Premium Gem. The 1893 Isabella quarters were the only quarter-dollar commemoratives issued until the 2010-dated America the Beautiful five-ounce silver bullion coins. (The 1932 Washington quarter issue was never a commemorative coin, it was intended to "replace an unsatisfactory design"; see Bowers' Washington quarter Guide Book, page 33.) Ex: Numismatic Investments of America.
