Ron Guth: The 1847 Quarter Dollar has one of the higher mintages of the dates from the 1840s. As a result, this date is fairly readily available, even in Mint State. According to the PCGS Population Report, PCGS has certified just over two dozen Mint State examples, usually in MS63 and MS64. Only two examples have been certified as PCGS MS65, with none finer. Most examples are well struck, with ample radial lines in the stars, and nice detailing on the eagle's feathers and on the fletches of the arrows.
