Ron Guth: In a survey of the members of the Liberty Seated Collectors Club, published in the March 2008 issue of the Gobrecht Journal, the 1849-O Quarter Dollar was ranked third among the Ten Greatest New Orleans Seated Coins: "This is one of the key dates in the Seated quarter series with an estimated mintage of only 16,000 pieces.  Most of the available coins are well worn but several mint state specimens are known.  A beautiful deeply oned coin that was graded NGC MS-64 appeared in the DLRC auction of the Richmond Collection in March 2005.  Another example described as MS-62 appeared in the Bowers and Merena sale of the Eliasberg Collection in April 1997.  While only 27% of the respondents placed this issue among their top three coices, it received strong support from the majority of members with 66% placing it among their top seven coins."
