25C 1894O PCGS MS66+
This is a really superb piece that is tied for FINEST graded at PCGS. Only a few microscopic (and we mean micro) contact ticks keep this coin from a full MS67 designation. Overall, the surfaces do appear satiny smooth and clean. A strong luster (especially for an O Mint) enlivens the totally original color scheme. Soft swirls of green/gold/blue/pale purple are visible all over. There is a small toning dot on the tip of the bonnet. Miss Liberty and the details are unusally sharply struck-for an O Mint. The eye appeal is terrific! PCGS 8, NGC 7, CAC 6. Neither of the MS66+ pieces have ever sold at auction. The current Collectors Universe Value is only $10,000.00. If you are building one of the very best MS Barber Collections, this will be a great coin to include. You can’t ask for a better time for a coin like this to be offered!
