1851-O 25C XF45 Certification #42170358, PCGS #5418

Expert Comments

Ron Guth

The 1851-O Quarter is a somewhat scarce issue, with a mintage of only 88,000 coins.  In 1991, Larry Briggs identified two different die varieties that comprise the entire issue for this year; the two varieties share the same obverse.  The reverses differ primarily by the position of the mintmark.

In Mint State, the 1851-O is a true condition-rarity with only a few Uncirculated examples available to collectors.  The finest example is the PCGS MS64 that was once part of the Eugene H. Gardner collection.
