The third highlight coin is a 1914-S 25c PCGS/CAC MS66+. Extremely scarce and popular date, especially in gem condition. Only a single piece is graded finer by PCGS, even with CAC sticker and a PCGS + grade!
The fourth highlight coin is a 1916 Standing Liberty 25c PCGS MS65 FH. Famous and popular key date SLQ.
