Description

1840 With Drapery Quarter, MS66
New Finest Known for the Issue

1840 25C MS66 NGC. As the Western movie line goes, there is "a new sheriff in town" for high-grade 1840 With Drapery quarters. Before this coin's certification, a trio of MS65 coins (one graded by NGC, two by PCGS) stood together at the top of the combined census, but now this MS66 coin shines alone--and shine it does, with gorgeous concentric toning on the obverse that is blue-green at the rims with a fade through indigo and violet toning that finishes in a small peach core. The sharply defined reverse is semi-reflective in the fields with colors appearing mostly at the borders. With its amazing all-around eye appeal, this early Seated quarter more than earns the Star designation that goes along with its Premium Gem grade.
Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 23SH, PCGS# 5397)
