1895-O Barber Quarter Dollar. NGC graded MS-63. Well struck and mostly white. Some tone near the date. At the time this O-mint quarter was made in 1895, America was being led by a beefy, 300-pound gentle giant of a President, Grover Cleveland. As politicians go, Mr. Cleveland was somewhere in-between when it came to skullduggery and job peddling. He had a conservative bent, though, which surfaced in his clashes with followers of the rabble-rouser William Jennings Bryan. Cleveland believed a gold standard to be the only honest standard. Unfortunately, soon after he gained office, the economy took a nose-dive and there was a run on the Treasury's gold, which reached a crisis in 1895. The Treasury came within a day or two of running out of gold! Pop 11; 34 finer. (PCGS # 5611) .
Estimated Value $700 - 800.

Realized $805
