Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1843-O, Large Date, Plain 4, Liberty Head quarter eagle is much scarcer than the Small Date variety, with fewer coins being offered at auction in all grades. Nearly every specimen seen of this date has a rough area of die rust on the neck of Liberty. Although many are weakly struck, a few examples remain that are relatively sharp. The Large Date variety is easily recognizable because the first digit of the date is much farther left and touches the point of the bust. The finest example offered in recent years was an MS 63 coin, which sold in 2007 for $15,525
