Description & Analysis

The first emission of 1842-O quarters featured a date similar in size to that used for 1841. The mintage of 1842-O Small Date is unknown but must have been quite small. Examples are rare across all grades, with Mint State pieces being all but unknown.

Just a single pair of dies produced this abortive issue.
