Description

Near-Mint 1856-O Quarter Eagle
Partially Prooflike Surfaces

1856-O $2 1/2 AU58 NGC. Variety 2. Only 21,100 quarter eagles were struck at the New Orleans Mint in 1856, making the 1856-O the scarcest issue of the decade. The number of examples still extant is probably only 115-125 pieces in all grades. This well-detailed near-Mint specimen shows traces of prooflike reflectivity in sheltered areas, especially on the reverse. Census: 48 in 58, 14 finer (8/11).
From The Baltimore Collection, Part Two.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25JA, PCGS# 7780)
