Rare Mint State 1839-C Quarter Eagle, MS62

1839-C $2 1/2 MS62 ICG. Overdate Variety 2-A. Struck from the first set of obverse and reverse dies, with the familiar die crack from the rim through the E in STATES. This piece combines its natural green-gold alloy with an overlay of reddish patina. The devices are well defined in the centers, with characteristic bluntness only on a few of the obverse stars. There is a large shallow planchet lamination (as struck) on the cheek. High grade (pieces grading AU or better) examples of this popular Charlotte issue are generally available for a price, but the appearance of an MS62 1839-C is most unusual, indeed Condition Census for the issue.(Registry values: P5) (NGC ID# 25G4, PCGS# 7699)
