Description:
1839-O Wide Fraction Quarter Eagle
Well-Detailed Choice AU
1839-O $2 1/2 AU55 NGC. High Date, Wide Fraction, Breen-6152, Variety-27, R.3. The 1839-O is a relatively available issue, even though only 17,781 pieces were produced. Of the 350-400 pieces believed extant, approximately a third are AU or Uncirculated. But there is tremendous interest and demand placed on the 1839-O, as it is the only New Orleans Classic-design of either denomination, and it has the always popular obverse mintmark. This green-gold example lacks the deep, distracting abrasions usually seen. The only surface flaws are a couple of small planchet flakes out of the reverse, one to the left of the eagle's left (facing) wing and the other just above the eagle's head. The strike is uniformly well brought up, and noticeable amounts of luster surround the devices.(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25G7, PCGS# 7701)
