Description:
Desirable 1838-C Quarter Eagle AU55
1838-C $2 1/2 AU55 NGC. Variety 1-A. The premier quarter eagle from the Charlotte Mint and an especially sought-after issue from a small mintage of just 7,880 coins. As with all 1838-Cs, the mintmark is widely double punched below the portrait, first entered low enough to touch the top of the 3 in the date. While displaying occasional bluntness on the highpoints (particularly on the eagle's right wingtip), this still-lustrous example is accented in attractive copper-gold hues. A pair of die cracks about the eagle indicates a late state of the dies. Census: 14 in 55, 31 finer (3/06).(Registry values: P3) (NGC ID# 25FZ, PCGS# 7697)
