Description:
Finest Known 1840 Quarter Eagle
1840 MS 61 NGC. A significant coin in that it is the finest mint state example graded by NGC (6/96); in fact, there are only two other mint state examples, both MS 60s. This example is lustrous and actually quite nice for the grade, but is somewhat softly struck on the highest points. The overall appearance is totally original and this piece has not been "improved" or tampered with over the years. Struck in a rich yellow-gold, an important addition to and an improvement of the known population. (NGC ID# 25GA, PCGS# 7717)
