1841-D $2 1/2 AU58 NGC....
Reflective 1841-D Quarter Eagle, AU581841-D $2 1/2 AU58 NGC. Variety 2-C. Both dies are cracked as Winter describes. The first three Liberty Head quarter eagles from the Dahlonega Mint are all low-mintage issues, each produced to the extent of fewer than 5,000 pieces. For the 1841-D the total was 4,164 coins, and most survivors today grade only Very Fine or Extremely Fine at best. Winter's second edition (2003) of the Dahlonega gold reference calls AU coins "very rare." A few high-grade pieces show frosty luster, and some rare examples including the present piece exist with semiprooflike fields.
This is a wonderful near-Mint State specimen. A well executed strike imparts virtually complete definition to the design elements, and both sides yield yellow-gold coloration imbued with splashes of red at the peripheries. The few light contact marks are in line with what would be expected for a coin that has seen brief circulation. Census: 7 in 58, 3 finer (12/08).
