Description

Rare 1842 Quarter Eagle, A Condition Census AU58 Representative

1842 $2 1/2 AU58 NGC. The Philadelphia Mint's delivery of Quarter Eagles in 1842 amounted to only 2,823 pieces. This is a deservedly rare issue in all grades, and both major grading services combined have certified just ten coins in About Uncirculated and two pieces in Mint State (1/02). As one of only three certified AU58 representatives, this bright, yellow-gold example easily qualifies for Condition Census standing. The surfaces retain dominant satin luster with a pleasing glow in the fields, the strike is sharp in all areas save for over the eagle's left (facing) leg feathers. Lightly abraded. (NGC ID# 25GG, PCGS# 7723)
