    1847 Misplaced Date Quarter, MS65+
    FS-301, Finest for the Date at NGC

    1847 25C Misplaced Date MS65+ NGC. Briggs 3-C, FS-301. CAC. The 1847 quarter issue in Mint State is far more elusive than many collectors realize. On this MS65+ example of the FS-301, the bottom loop of a misplaced 8 pokes out from the bottom of Liberty's rock, just left of the final 8. The reverse shows small die cracks from U(NITED) to the olive leaves and joining TE(S). This is a beautiful Gem with dappled olive-green, gold, and ochre on the obverse, deep russet-gold with blue accents on the reverse. The strike is sharp throughout, and eye appeal abounds. For the date, Census: 4 in 65 (1 in 65+), 0 finer (10/13).

    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.
