    1841 Quarter, MS66 ★
    Vibrant Luster and Color

    1841 25C MS66 ★ NGC. CAC. MS66 examples of the 1841 quarter dollar do not come onto the market often. In fact, it is only with the certification of this MS66 coin that one can say "examples" at all, as previously there was a single PCGS-graded piece at that level in the combined certified population, with none finer. Heritage had the privilege of offering the PCGS coin in June 1995; now, more than 18 years later, we have the honor of offering its NGC-certified Newman counterpart.

    This Premium Gem earns its Star designation with effusive luster which is more obvious on the more lightly toned reverse. On that side, blue rims give way to a medium-width ring around a silver-white core. The obverse, by contrast, has strong turquoise, lapis, and amethyst around a small center with reddish-orange "fire." A coin as beautiful as it is original, more than 170 years old and still marvelous.

    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.
