Description:
Rare 1853-O Arrows and Rays Quarter, MS64
1853-O 25C Arrows and Rays MS64 PCGS. Larry Briggs recent series update in the Coin Dealer Newsletter called this issue "fairly easy to locate in all grades AG-XF; AU coins very scarce and Mint State coins downright rare." The one-year type with the Rays reverse shows a curiosity of the issue, as the large O mintmark lies over the rays underneath. Like many examples, the present near-Gem displays a "halo" effect around many of the devices, an attempt, per Briggs, to reengrave the dies to prolong their life. The obverse die nonetheless appears in an advanced state. Aside from the prominent halo effect on the right-side stars, an extremely bold die clash runs from Liberty's lower curls through the pole and upraised forearm. A couple of wispy die cracks appear elsewhere on that side.
Considerable luster emanates from surfaces that show little post-strike contact. The coloration is largely silver-gold, with daubs of jade, ochre, and mauve more visible on the reverse. A prize for the Seated quarter, type, or New Orleans specialists, and among the finest at PCGS. Population: 5 in 64, 0 finer (11/09).(Registry values: P6) (NGC ID# 23U5, PCGS# 5428)
