||QUARTER DOLLARS - SEATED LIBERTY, NO MOTTO
||25C 1859 O
||NGC MS 65
Br 1-A, and an R-6+ coin at this level. Only three coins graded MS-65 (one PCGS, two NGC. At the time this coin was bought there were three at NGC and none at PCGS; evidently one crossed.) with a sole coin graded higher by NGC (MS-67). The coin has a decent strike although stars 12 and 13 are flat. On the reverse the D in UNITED and first S in STATES appear to be re-cut. There are also numerous die scratches surrounding the letters ES in STATES. The coin is nicely toned with full luster. Bought from David Lawrence Rare Coins July 2000.
