Description & Analysis

The vast majority of 1842 New Orleans Mint quarters bore the Large Date, which became standard for this series over the next several years.

This issue had a generous mintage, and well worn examples are plentiful. It becomes scarce in grades approaching Mint State, and pieces that are actually unworn are genuinely rare.

There were at least six die marriages, and all bear the Small O mintmark. None of the varieties are of interest beyond series specialists.
