This specimen was lot 23460 in Heritage sale 3024 (Chicago, April 2013), where it sold for $2,820. The catalog description[1] noted, "George V 25 Cents 1927, MS64 PCGS and MS64 ICCS, full frosty white mint brilliance with virtually pristine surfaces, a choice example of this key date.

Specification: 5.83 g, .800 fine silver, .150 troy oz ASW, reeded edge.
