1898-O Barber Quarter, Choice VF, SCARCE!

Year: 1898O
Condition: VF-30
Country: United States
Considered by David Lawrence to be one of the toughest coins in the set in VF or better (R-4). This is a very original if slightly darker coin, with exceptional detail and some hints of luster on the Reverse. Unfortunately, it has a minor rim issue, as there is a rough spot at 11:00. This is probably an attempt to smooth over a small rim flaw, something done in the past when this sort of thing was not as frowned upon as it is now. This area has toned over, so it was done a long time ago, probably in the 1950's. As the coin is otherwise, a $200-225 coin, when and if you can find one, my adjustment for a minor problem that cannot be seen once placed into an album seems reasonable.
