1961 Washington Quarter. MS-66 (PCGS). CAC. Blended golden-olive, pewter gray, champagne-apricot and powder blue iridescence are seen on both sides of this frosty and smooth-looking Gem. Superb Gems are surprisingly scarce relative to the sizable mintage (37,036,000 circulation strikes), and this beautifully toned MS-66 offers outstanding value.
