It's rare..........1952 Proof Quarter with a clear punched "S" in the Chest. ANACS is the only one currently certifying them, but I believe that's about to change.


17 Graded by ANACS so far............and I don't think their are a whole lot out there, but I would imagine it is a coin that can be cherry picked if at the right show thumbsup2.gif



No idea of what the value would be, but a PF66 sold on Ebay for $82. I think if you could find another one for the price it would be a steal!!!!

The "Superbird" variety is the result of a lint impression. The proof dies were periodically wiped with a soft cloth to clean them, and small pieces of lint sometimes remained on the die face. These caused an impression on the coins struck from these dies. In this instance, the piece of lint settled on the die in the shape of a letter 'S' and transferred this figure to the coins struck from it.


NGC has been certifying this Cherrypicker variety for several months, and you'll find more than 40 examples in our Census.
