Description

Elusive 1842-O Quarter Eagle, AU58

1842-O $2 1/2 AU58 PCGS. The 1842-O is one of the most elusive O-mints in any grade, and extremely so in AU or better condition. This coin's color is a superior and attractive mix of medium-gold and copper-gold. This highly lustrous example is well struck, even on the forecurl that trails down Liberty's neck, although examination with a loupe reveals a small scratch between stars 9 and 10. The reverse is boldly impressed, with excellent overall detailing on the eagle save on the left (facing) leg. The reverse is free of singularly mentionable marks. A stunning example of this rare branch mint coinage. Population: 6 in 58, 12 finer (3/09).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25GK, PCGS# 7726)
