1867-S. PCGS graded MS-62 CAC Approved. Well struck and very frosty. A Premium Quality example. The demand for silver coins in California had begun with the influx of gold rush pioneers eighteen years before this coin and continued throughout the Civil War period. With only 48,000 quarters struck in the San Francisco mint in 1867 supplies were below what was needed in the booming post-war western economy. Fewer than 200 pieces are thought to exist today in all grades. This is a desirable coin in Mint condition. The original silvery and satiny field is intact and both sides are pretty much untoned. The central devices are fully struck, while the peripheral stars (as often happens) are not so well brought up--a trait seen on most known 1867-S quarters. The presently offered specimen is one of the better known examples, per the following grade census at PCGS: Pop 2; 2 in 63, 1 in 64. (PCGS # 5471) .
Estimated Value $17,000 - 19,000.
