Description:
Spectacularly Toned MS66 1844-O Quarter, Ex: Walrath, Pittman
1844-O 25C MS66 NGC. Ex: Pittman. With a sizeable original delivery of 740,000 pieces, the 1844-O is a readily obtainable issue in grades up to and including About Uncirculated. As Southerners saved very few of these coins at the time of their delivery, this specter of commonness fades quickly as one passes into the Mint State grades. While any Uncirculated survivor of this O-mint issue should be considered a rare find, the present Gem is in a class all its own. Sharply impressed by New Orleans mint standards, every star centril, hair feature, and feather detail rises powerfully above the nicely mirrored fields. While the pristine surfaces do full justice to the respected grade designation, we call attention to a small abrasion on Liberty's cheek and a rim cut above the first A in AMERICA that should be of obvious importance for pedigree purposes. Mottled steel-gray, lilac, and charcoal patination rounds out the memorable eye appeal of this solid Condition Census example. To date, this is the single finest specimen certified by either NGC or PCGS (11/03).
Ex: Walrath Collection (Numismatic Gallery, 5/48), lot 475; Pittman Collection (David Akers, 5/98), lot 1311, where it realized $3,300; September 1998 Long Beach Sale (Heritage, 9/98), lot 6653; 1999 FUN Sale (Heritage, 1/99), lot 6597, where it realized $5,865; 1999 E-Fair Premier Sale (Heritage, 10/99), lot 5230, where it realized $4,800.
