    Description

    1840-O Seated Quarter, MS63
    No-Drapery, Seldom Seen Any Finer

    1840-O 25C No Drapery MS63 NGC. Briggs 2-B, Flynn RPD-001. Very scarce in Select Uncirculated and finer grades, the 1840-O No Drapery quarters were struck with the original Gobrecht design before drapery was added later in the year. Areas of deep-blue and russet-brown toning at the margins yield to pale champagne-gold centers with full mint luster glowing beneath the frosty surfaces. The strike is sharp on Liberty's head and the obverse stars. The mintmark sits far-right on the Briggs 2-B variety, with the faint outline of a repunched 0 below the primary digit. Housed in an early, pre-hologram NGC holder. Census: 3 in 63, 7 finer (7/16).
    From The Twelve Oaks Collection.(Registry values: P6)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 23SG, PCGS# 5393)
