1932-D华盛顿1/4美金 PCGS MS 66 Washington Quarter. MS-66 (PCGS)
.As one of the two finest examples of the key date 1932-D quarter known to PCGS, our offering of this extraordinary coin represents a fleeting bidding opportunity for advanced collectors of the Washington series. Dusted with pale silver and sandy-gold iridescence, both sides are highly lustrous with a full quota of billowy mint frost. Fully struck throughout the design, with surfaces that are remarkably smooth and as close to pristine as one is ever likely to see in a survivor of this conditionally challenging issue.The first Denver Mint issue of the type, the 1932-D is also one of the rarest due to a mintage of 436,800 pieces. It is actually the</em> rarest Washington quarter issue in grades above MS-64, surpassing even the lower mintage 1932-S. As of this writing PCGS has bestowed the MS-66 grade on only two examples of the 1932-D, as above, and there are none graded higher.
