    1840 With Drapery Quarter, MS66 ★
    New Finest Known for the Issue

    1840 25C MS66 ★ NGC. As the Western movie line goes, there is "a new sheriff in town" for high-grade 1840 With Drapery quarters. Before this coin's certification, a trio of MS65 coins (one graded by NGC, two by PCGS) stood together at the top of the combined census, but now this MS66 coin shines alone--and shine it does, with gorgeous concentric toning on the obverse that is blue-green at the rims with a fade through indigo and violet toning that finishes in a small peach core. The sharply defined reverse is semi-reflective in the fields with colors appearing mostly at the borders. With its amazing all-around eye appeal, this early Seated quarter more than earns the Star designation that goes along with its Premium Gem grade.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
