    Impressive Gem 1838 Seated Quarter

    1838 25C No Drapery MS65 NGC. Open Claws Reverse. This lustrous first-year Seated quarter has only a hint of olive toning. The fields are splendidly void of consequential contact, and the strike is exacting aside from minor softness on Liberty's toes. Struck from early, unclashed dies. Among Philadelphia issues, only the 1838 and 1839 lack drapery beneath Liberty's raised elbow. Some of the 1840-O halves are also No Drapery, and these three early dates complete the popular No Drapery subtype. The 1838 is plentiful in typical circulated grades, but is scarce above VF and emerges as a notable rarity at the MS65 level. Census: 4 in 65, 3 finer (10/06).(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 23SE, PCGS# 5391)

    The staff at Heritage are amazing to work with. My wife and I were given the "red carpet treatment" from the moment we walked in. We felt safe and secure the moment we arrived.
