Full Description

NGC assigns a star to coins with exceptional eye appeal for their assigned grade.Eye appeal is the most subjective attribute of a coin, but there are norms and standards shared by numismatists. Exceptional eye appeal may include attributes such as vibrant, colorful toning; intense luster; or, in the case of Proof coins, especially strong cameo contrast.

To receive a star , coins must be free of any obvious planchet irregularities, and display no bothersome spots or blemishes. Toned coins can be of a single color or multicolored but cannot have any areas that are dark brown, approaching black.It's important to remember that star designated coins can fall anywhere within the grades to which they are assigned. For example, an MS 64-graded coin could be at the lower end, mid-range or higher end of that grade.

Having received the fantastic NGC star designation, the 1976 S Copper-Nickel Clad Washington Quarter is a fantastic opportunity to own a unique monetary piece. First issued in 1965, the copper nickel clad Washington Quarters and were the result of the U.S. wanting to keep their silver bullion supply from dwindling.
