Description

Choice AU 1842-C Quarter Eagle

1842-C $2 1/2 AU55 NGC. Variety 1, the only known. The 1842-C is one of the rarest quarter eagles from the Charlotte Mint. Moreover, it is often poorly struck. The current Choice AU example reveals the usual weakness in the star centers and eagle's neck and left (facing) leg feathers. The remaining features are generally well impressed, however, including the date digits and letters in LIBERTY, areas that are typically weak. Brassy-gold surfaces retain luster in the recesses and reveal the expected number of marks for a coin that has seen brief circulation. Census: 9 in 55, 11 finer (4/09).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25GH, PCGS# 7724)
