1839 25C No Drapery MS64 NGC. Briggs 2-B. Closed Claws Reverse. This satiny near-Gem showcases a bold strike and lacks distracting abrasions.

Uncirculated 1839 quarters are scarce in all grades and genuinely rare above MS64. Census: 7 in 64, 1 finer (8/17). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G.
