1907 Liberty Head Quarter Eagle. MS-68 (PCGS). Luxurious frosty surfaces are exceptionally vivid with rose-gold and powder blue iridescence on both sides. Fully struck and very close to perfection, this is an exquisite example that belongs in another world class numismatic cabinet.Theodore Roosevelts "pet crime" to remake and modernize American coins spelled the end for Christian Gobrechts Liberty Head design that had been in use on the quarter eagle, half eagle, and eagle for almost 70 years. The quarter eagles time for redesign came in 1908, leaving one last year for the Liberty Head design. The quarter eagle was not as frequently required in daily use as the half eagle, and by the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the denominations production was limited to the Philadelphia Mint. Only 336,294 quarter eagles were coined in 1907. Many were saved, with several thousand in Uncirculated condition, mostly between MS-62 and MS-65. Above the Gem level the issue becomes very scarce. PCGS lists only 20 grading events at the MS-68 for all Liberty Head quarter eagles combined, with the 1905 alone representing five of those records. Incredibly close to numismatic perfection, the Pogue 1907 quarter eagle is a superb example of the last of the Liberty Head quarter eagles.
