1839-O $2 1/2 NGC AU53

DLRC #: 1863242 // PCGS #: 7701

A desirable New Orleans mint issue in the Classic-head quarter eagle series. One of our favorite design types with the obverse mintmark, this popular early quarter eagle displays lovely yellow-golden tints and frosty mint luster. The reverse is fully rotated which makes this an interesting medallic alignment piece.
