    Description

    Highly Popular 1839-O Quarter Eagle

    1839-O $2 1/2 AU58 PCGS. Breen-6153. The scarcer Close Fraction variety and, as often seen, with medallic die alignment. This is a sharply struck coin with good remaining luster and surfaces that are pleasingly free from distracting abrasions. Several heavy die cracks are seen on the reverse. An example that appears to be conservatively graded.
    Ex: Heritage (1/02), lot 7981.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25G7, PCGS# 7701)
