Description:
1843-O Quarter Eagle, MS62
Rare Large Date Variant
1843-O $2 1/2 Large Date, Plain 4 MS62 PCGS. CAC. Variety 1. The 1843-O quarter eagle, with the large numerals in the date, is much more elusive than its Small Date counterpart. It claims a low reported mintage of just 76,000 pieces. The issue is actually the second-rarest Liberty quarter eagle from the New Orleans Mint, although its rarity is largely unappreciated outside of series specialists. The surviving population numbers 75-85 examples in all grades, and Mint State specimens are very rare.

The present coin is well-detailed in most areas, but some softness shows on the eagle's legs and claws. The pleasing yellow-gold surfaces show highlights of rose at the peripheries, with a few grade-consistent contact marks on both sides. The surfaces show vibrant mint luster mixed with prooflike reflectivity in selected areas. Population: 4 in 62, 0 finer (12/13).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25GS, PCGS# 7732)
