    Extremely Scarce Near-Gem, 1841-O Seated Quarter, DDO, FS-1, Briggs 2-C

    1841-O 25C MS64 PCGS. Doubled Die Obverse. FS-1, Briggs 2-C. The shield is strongly die doubled, as is Liberty's foot. Several of the obverse stars are widely repunched as well. Discovered in 1982, the New Orleans Hoard contained numerous Mint State examples of this early O-mint Seated Quarter. Most of the coins in that hoard are, however, lackluster and/or corroded, and this issue is still a significant rarity in the finer Mint State grades. This olive-gold representative is a little softly struck in a few areas with smooth, nearly Gem quality surfaces. A couple of swirls of charcoal color are noted in the upper left reverse field. NGC and PCGS combined have seen just eight coins in MS64, with a mere three finer (6/04).
