Seldom Seen AU 1849-O Quarter

1849-O 25C AU50 ICG. The 1849-O is the most elusive Seated quarter delivery from the New Orleans Mint, and is perhaps the rarest pre-1853 Seated quarter. Although no 1849-O quarters were listed with official mintage figures, researchers speculate that the New Orleans Mint's delivery of 396,000 quarters in 1850 included about 16,000 pieces dated 1849. Whatever the actual mintage figure may be, there is little doubt that heavy circulation and widespread melting during the peak of the California Gold Rush both took their toll on this extremely difficult issue. This is a minimally worn example with lustrous silver-gray surfaces and a touch of reddish-orange color about the peripheral devices.
Ex: Atlanta Signature (Heritage, 8/2001), lot 5881.(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# 23T3, PCGS# 5414)
