Description:
One of the Finest Known 1840-D Quarter Eagles, AU50, Struck From Shattered Dies
1840-D $2 1/2 AU50 PCGS. Ex: Bass. Winter 1-A. The 1840-D is an important issue as it is the first Liberty Quarter Eagle struck in the Georgia mint. Plus, it is a very scarce coin with an original mintage of only 3,532 pieces. Only 50-55 coins are believed extant today in all grades with an estimated 4-6 pieces in AU condition. The coin was described in Bass II as, "Bright yellow-gold...This piece is one of the very finest known examples of the 1840-D Quarter Eagle and will no doubt attract wide attention."
Purchased from Stanley Kesselman, April 28, 1967; Bass II (Bowers and Merena, 10/99), lot 330, where it brought $14,375.
From the Ashland City Collection. (NGC ID# 25GC, PCGS# 7719)
