Description

Very Rare and Desirable Mint State 1840-O Quarter Eagle

1840-O $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. The 1840-O is a very scarce issue in all grades with only 70-75 pieces believed known today. It is difficult to locate a coin finer than VF, and a paltry 3-4 specimens are believed extant in mint condition with none finer than MS62 by either service. Softly struck in the centers, the yellowish green-gold surfaces show subdued satin-like luster. Minimally abraded also, the only mark that might be reliably used for pedigree purposes is a squiggly graze in the left obverse field down from star 5.
From the Ashland City Collection. (NGC ID# 54TU, PCGS# 7720)
