1839-O Quarter Eagle, Unc Details
Only O-Mint Classic Head Issue

1839-O $2 1/2 -- Obverse Repaired -- NGC Details. Unc. Breen-6152, Variety 27. Always in demand as the only issue of the Classic Head design from the New Orleans Mint, the 1839-O quarter eagle claims a mintage of 17,781 pieces. This well-detailed orange and rose-gold example displays brighter mint luster on the reverse and there is some evidence of smoothing in the left obverse field, possibly to remove some graffiti.
From the collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.
