||1841 25C MS66 S NGC. CAC. MS66 examples of the 1841 quarter dollar do not come onto the market often. In fact, it is only with the certification of this MS66 S coin that one can say "examples" at all, as previously there was a single PCGS-graded piece at that level in the combined certified population, with none finer. Heritage had the privilege of offering the PCGS coin in June 1995; now, more than 18 years later, we have the honor of offering its NGC-certified Newman counterpart. This Premium Gem earns its Star designation with effusive luster which is more obvious on the more lightly toned reverse. On that side, blue rims give way to a medium-width ring around a silver-white core. The obverse, by contrast, has strong turquoise, lapis, and amethyst around a small center with reddish-orange "fire." A coin as beautiful as it is original, more than 170 years old and still marvelous. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
