The 1844-O has a large mintage and is fairly plentiful in most grades. In terms of overall survivorship, the 1844-O mimics other O-Mint Quarters from the period. However, in Mint State, the 1844-O is definitely more plentiful than the 1842-O, 1843-O, and 1847-O, but it is not nearly as common as the 1841-O.
Most 1844-O Quarters are struck quite well for a New Orleans product. The typical examples grades MS63 or lower, and the best examples at the top end rate out at MS65.
