CAC Approved - Choice Original, Crusty Brown-Gray Patina, Completely Struck , Accurately Graded, CAC Approved. One sees many 1838 dated No Drapery quarters on the market while the 1839 date is much more challenging to locate. Poor strikes on No Drapery designs are also a substantial issue as few example are struck up enough to appreciate the artistry of Chief Engraver Christian Gobrecht. GFRC is pleased to offer this natural 1839 example that is freshly graded and housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. Surfaces are so crusty original with brown-gray patina and some ebony highlights mostly at right obverse rim. Strike is considered complete for the No Drapery design due to pervasive weakness. All stars have connected centrils and all reverse devices are deeply impressed. If one wishes to be exact, there is just a touch of weakness at the top of Liberty's head. Reverse horizontal bisecting die crack is bold and consistent with Briggs 1-A illustrations. Blemishes are limited to a few fully toned over random ticks that are of no consequence. Grading is accurate. A strong offering with CAC approval that deserves special attention by avid Seated quarter collectors. Taken in trade at the 2020 FUN show from a GFRC client. Now back in stock for a second sale.
