Description 1840 25C MS66 S NGC. As the Western movie line goes, there is "a new sheriff in town" for high-grade 1840 With Drapery quarters. Before this coin's certification, a trio of MS65 coins (one graded by NGC, two by PCGS) stood together at the top of the combined census, but now this MS66 S coin shines alone--and shine it does, with gorgeous concentric toning on the obverse that is blue-green at the rims with a fade through indigo and violet toning that finishes in a small peach core. The sharply defined reverse is semi-reflective in the fields with colors appearing mostly at the borders. With its amazing all-around eye appeal, this early Seated quarter more than earns the Star designation that goes along with its Premium Gem grade. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $35,250.00 . Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions,
