Description

Very Rare Large O Drapery 1840-O Quarter

1840-O 25C Drapery AU53 NGC. Large O mintmark. Breen-3941, "Very rare." Briggs (1991) states, "Most pieces are low grade... Finest known is XF45... To date this is the rarest collectible Seated Liberty Quarter." A fascinating variety, not only for its distinctive mintmark, but the reverse has two widely separated sets of dentils. Characteristic of the variety, portions of the eagle's body are softly struck, although the shield is relatively sharp. Striking weakness is also noted on Liberty's head and several stars. The gently toned and unmarked surfaces possesses ample luster, and the upper reverse field has myriad tiny planchet flaws.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 23SJ, PCGS# 5398)
