1843-O $2.50 Liberty, Large Date NGC MS61. The Large Date 1843-O quarter eagle is by far the scarcer of the two date size varieties for this issue, and this is particularly notable in Mint State. Gold expert David Akers estimated that only 75 to 85 Large Date coins exist in all grades. If accurate, the certified population figures are highly inflated. Either way, Mint State examples are genuinely rare.
- Original mintage 76,000 coins for the Large Date; 288,000 for the Small Date.
- Population of 10 coins with 6 finer (1 MS64).
- A total of 132 certified in all conditions.
- NGC Price Guide $8,400.
