DESCRIPTION Top Pop 1904 Liberty Head $2.50
MS-68 (PCGS)1904 Liberty Head Quarter Eagle. MS-68 (PCGS).
An incredible Ultra Gem example showcasing virtually perfect surfaces. Vibrant golden-wheat coloration is accented by faint hints of honey gold in areas. Sharply struck with frosty devices and a more satiny luster in the fields. This MS-68 example is one of the very finest known, with only 3 graded at this level by PCGS and none finer. For the most advanced Registry Set participant, this piece represents the very pinnacle of preservation and desirability.
With a sizable mintage of 160,790 pieces, the 1904 quarter eagle does not typically attract a great deal of attention from collectors. Although scarcer than the 1903, 1905 and the 1907, the 1904 is still one of the more plentiful Liberty Head quarter eagles in terms of total number of Mint State coins extant. However, at the Superb Gem level, this issue becomes a conditional rarity and MS-68 pieces like the present are virtually unobtainable. PCGS# 7856.
