    1840-O Seated Quarter, MS64
    No Drapery, Seldom Seen Any Finer

    1840-O 25C No Drapery MS64 NGC. Briggs 1-A, Flynn RPD-002. An initial mintage of 382,200 pieces was struck with the original Gobrecht design, without drapery beneath the elbow. Later in the year, an additional 43,000 coins were made with drapery, giving the 1840-O two Guide Book entries. This is a fully struck near-Gem No Drapery quarter, with die clashing visible within the reverse shield and a widely repunched 8 in the date. Lustrous, silver-gray surfaces display pearlescent mint luster, with faint golden accents at the rims. A few minuscule marks are widely scattered about the obverse, visible with a lens. All 1840-O No Drapery coins have small dentils that are often incomplete, but on this crisply struck piece the dentils are sharp and fully formed throughout both sides. Examples of the No Drapery variant are rare in Choice Uncirculated or finer grades, with just three finer pieces reported by PCGS and NGC combined (all at NGC). Census: 5 in 64, 3 finer (2/19).(Registry values: P6)

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