||1908-O 25C MS66+ NGC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Struck in the penultimate year of the New Orleans mint before it was turned into an assay office, this Premium Gem with the Plus designation is far above-average of what is expected. Normally luster is subdued and satiny and the strike is indifferent. This well-preserved quarter displays rich coloration in shadings of reddish-gray, an undertone of yellow-gold, and occasional spots of untoned brilliance. The strike is sharp overall with only slight softness noted on the forecurl of Liberty's hair and the top of Liberty's right (facing) wing. Census: 5 in 66 (1 in 66+), 2 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 @ $2.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
