||1893-S 25C MS64 NGC. CAC. Breen-4135. Mintmark Far Right. The 1893-S is a second-year branch mint issue that was little saved at the time of release. Consequently, high-end examples such as the present near-Gem are relatively elusive. A melange of violet, gold-orange,and electric-blue toning resides on the lustrous surfaces of this sharply struck and well-preserved piece. These attributes combine to yield pleasing overall eye appeal. Census: 20 in 64, 7 finer (10/13). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
