Description:
Pedigreed MS 63 1838-C Quarter Eagle--A Lower Condition Census Coin
1838-C MS 63 NGC. Great demand explains the value of this issue, rather than a low mintage or low survival in high grades. What is so desirable to collectors is its first-year of issue status combined with the Classic design and obverse mintmark. This is the fifth finest known specimen and is identifiable as such by a small mark on the jaw of Liberty. The striking details on this piece are exceptionally strong in all areas, except on several of the obverse stars, and a wire rim encircles the obverse. The green-gold color of the coin is uniform throughout and there are no alloy spots on either side. Numerous small abrasions are sprinkled over each side, but the only mentionable ones are the small mark listed above, and a shallow, arrow-shaped scratch in the field to the right of the eagle's head on the reverse.
Ex: Eastern dealer; Lee Minshull; Piedmont Collection (Superior, 1/96), lot 2179; Winthrop Carner; James A. Stack Collection (Stack's, 3/95), lot 405. (NGC ID# 25FZ, PCGS# 7697)

Learn About Consigning With Us
What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
