There are two MS67 1893-S Barber Quarters at the top of the PCGS Census, none finer, and both were included in the Gene Gardner Collection. This, the finer of the two, was considered by Gene to be his primary coin, an opinion to which we agree. His duplicate can easily be ranked at second best, but with toning that is a little darker, and a little filmy (Heritage “Gardner IV”, 10/2015: lot 98553 @ $20,562 as PCGS MS67). Additionally, both coins are included in the CAC Census as MS67.
