Description

Radiant Choice AU 1840-D Quarter Eagle

1840-D $2 1/2 AU55 NGC. Variety 1-A. Extensive die cracks on the reverse. In 1840 the Dahlonega Mint produced its first Liberty Head quarter eagles along with three other mints, but Dahlonega's total, only 3,532 coins, is by far the smallest of the four issues. It is among the most difficult and elusive D-mint quarter eagles to find in high grade, not only due to its small mintage but also because most examples are well worn, with heavy abrasions, a usually poor strike, and little or no luster.
By contrast, the lemon-gold surfaces of the present piece are radiant, and the strike is substantially above average. A handful of scattered abrasions is perhaps unavoidable for this issue, but the present Choice AU coin has come away from history better-preserved than most. A desirable survivor. Census: 7 in 55, 6 finer (12/08).
From The Grand Lake Collection.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 54TT, PCGS# 7719)
