Description

    1846 Quarter Dollar, MS65
    Deep Peripheral Toning
    Conditionally Rare

    1846 25C MS65 PCGS. CAC. The 1846 quarter dollar comes from a mintage of 510,000 business strikes. The issue is a somewhat scarce date, evidenced in part by fewer than 140 examples certified in all grades by PCGS and NGC. Most examples are in the Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated levels of preservation. Uncirculated specimens in the MS60 to MS63 range can be located with patience and searching, while near-Gems will be more difficult to obtain. The two services have seen a mere four MS65 coins, including the present offering, and one Premium Gem graded by NGC.

    A melange of deep reddish-gold, cobalt-blue, and purple toning fringes the borders of this lustrous example, complemented by boldly struck design features. An unobtrusive linear mark on Liberty's neck, one on the cheek, and two toning streaks to the lower left of the reverse shield identify the coin. Population: 3 in 65, 0 finer (3/13).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 4B6Z, PCGS# 5409)

    Weight: 6.68 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
