Description:
Sharp 1850 Gem Quarter
Briggs 1-A, Extra 1 in Dentils
1850 25C MS65 NGC. Extra 1 in Dentils. MPD-001. Briggs 1-A. The 1 was mispunched below and left of the date with the base and part of the upright clearly showing on the rim of the coin. This is one of the more dramatic mispunchings from the period, and this Gem may be one of the finest known of the variety, if not the finest. The surfaces are stark white with heavily striated fields that impart a bright, semi-reflective sheen on each side. The strike is sharp on the peripheral stars, but there is localized weakness on Liberty's lower curls and breast. As a date, the 1850 Seated quarter is elusive, as most of the original mintage was melted during the increase in silver prices caused by the California Gold Rush. Identifiable by a tiny nick on Liberty's left (facing) forearm. We also note a raised die lump on the chest near the neck. This is one of the finest examples certified by either NGC or PCGS. Census: 2 in 65, 2 finer (11/08).
From The Scott Rudolph Collection.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 23T4, PCGS# 5415)
