Description

    1843-O Seated Quarter, MS64
    Rare Large O Variety
    Finest Known, Ex: Eliasberg

    1843-O 25C Large O MS64 NGC. Ex: Eliasberg. From a mintage of 968,000 pieces, the 1843-O Seated Liberty quarter is known in both large and small mintmark varieties. This coin represents the less available Large O type, which is extremely rare in Mint State grades. When Larry Briggs wrote his series reference in 1991 he noted that the Large O was unknown in Mint State, and most numismatists agreed with that assessment until this coin surfaced in the Eliasberg sale in 1997. This coin is still the only example certified in Uncirculated condition by NGC, with its nearest competitor grading only XF45.
    The pleasing surfaces of this delightful Choice specimen are blanketed in attractive shades of dove-gray, champagne-gold, and lavender toning, with slightly subdued mint luster shining through the patina. The design elements are well-detailed, and the fields show only minor signs of contact. Census for Large O: 1 in 64, 0 finer (11/12).
    Ex: Louis Eliasberg, Sr. Collection (Bowers and Merena, 4/1997), lot 1434. (NGC ID# 23SS, Variety PCGS# 395927, Base PCGS# 5405)

    Weight: 6.68 grams

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
