If you're putting together a set of circulated Barber Quarters, or if you're just a key date collector, It's not often that the opportunity presents itself to own a 1901-S in XF or AU! In fact, this coin is so scarce, most sets have a G-4, if any, in it's place.
The PCGS certified population shows 946 grading events for the 1901-S with only 4 in XF-40 and 45 graded higher about 5% of the population! The rare 1901-S, considered one of the tougher big 3 Barber Quarters with the 1896-S and 1913-S, reports a very low 72,664 mintage.David Bowers states "The 1901-S is the runaway key to the Barber quarter series in terms of demand at all levels". The specimen offered here is graced with light golden-gray surfaces, a sharp strike and a high degree of eye appeal at this level of circulation. Truly Choice Examples almost never come to market and is a prize for specialists who take notice grabbing onto one of the few opportunities to acquire one. The offered example is quite pleasing and only has a few marks that are par for the grade.
Most examples in this state of preservation have been cleaned or worked on in some way. I'd say that well over 90% have at least minor issues.
