Stack's Bowers Auction The March 2013 Baltimore Auction Feb-2013 1843-O Liberty Quarter Eagle. Small Date, Crosslet 4. MS-65 (NGC). Phenomenal surfaces and luster for the date or mint specialist who demands high condition census quality and strong eye appeal. Both the obverse and reverse show satiny luster in the fields combined with a thin patina of age and careful storage. Well-struck in general, but from lapped dies where the stars and dentils above Liberty's head are thin and lack the normal depth as the die surface had literally been ground down in this area. Sharper elsewhere on the obverse devices which display the normal depth. The eagle has full wing feathers but has minor softness on his thigh. Examination finds satiny fields and frosted devices, with no deep or detracting marks from handling, keeping the Gem level secure. Of the original mintage of 288,002 pieces, this is one of the two finest certified between both grading services. This condition rarity  is simply extraordinary given the period when these were struck and how unlikely it is that such a coin should survive from that period at the Gem grade level today. Certain to attract well deserved attention, and an important offering for the specialist.
