||1844 25C MS65+ S NGC. CAC. One of the many delights of the Eric Newman Collection is not only the quality of the coins presented, but the consistency of their appearance. The coins that are near to each other within a given series often show a similar texture in color and overall preservation, sometimes even in the coloration of the patina, given that they have obviously been stored in the same fashion for many decades (and in many cases, probably before that within the "Colonel" Green Collection). Note how similar the coloration of this coin is to the 1843 Seated quarter in MS64+ in this collection. This MS65+ S 1844 Seated quarter displays concentric rainbow toning throughout the obverse, and like the 1843 a silver-centered reverse with rim color accents, here amber-gold and charcoal. And as for quality: Even this "common" issue is the sole finest at NGC, given the Plus and Star bonuses. Census: 3 in 65 Cameo (1 in 65+ S Cameo), 0 finer (10/13). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
