1896-S 25C Barber Quarter PCGS XF40. The 1896-S has always been one of the three “keys” to those attempting to put a date and mintmark set together, along with the 1901-S and the 1913-S. In fact, the PCGS CU3000 includes price data for this coin when determining their Key Dates and Rarities Index. This particular example shows toning consistent with it’s age but still retains a tremendous amount of detail. We priced this one at the CDN Monthly Bid.
