Remarkable 1852-O Quarter, MS62
1852-O 25C MS62 PCGS. Only 96,000 pieces were struck of the
1852-O and remarkably few are known today, especially above VF.
Those that are seen are generally weakly struck and many have a
"saltwater" surface. This piece shows some softness of details on
the obverse, but the reverse is remarkably well defined. The
obverse also shows some porosity, but again the reverse is smooth
and sparkles with mint luster. The obverse has smoky golden and
lilac toning, while again the reverse presents a stark contrast and
is nearly brilliant. This piece is tied for second finest certified
with one NGC coin. The finest known is an NGC MS63 that sold in our
November 2007 Dallas Auction for an unprecedented $126,500.
