||1894-S 25C MS65 NGC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. This S-mint issue is rather elusive as a Gem, despite a respectable mintage of 2,648,821 pieces. Even a quick glance at this Gem example reveals areas of rich toning, particularly on the obverse. The vivid colors include cerulean-blue, deep pink, copper, blue-green, and plum. A sharp strike is an additional attribute of this piece. Census: 11 in 65, 3 finer (10/13). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $6.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
