Description

1842-C Quarter Eagle, AU55
Low Mintage, Better Date Issue

1842-C $2 1/2 AU55 NGC. Variety 1, the only known variety. From a tiny mintage of 6,729 pieces, the 1842-C quarter eagle is seldom encountered in any grade. The surviving population is estimated at 100-125 examples in all grades. At the AU level coins are decidedly rare, with perhaps 12-16 specimens qualifying for the designation. The present coin is a pleasing specimen, with lightly abraded fields, and attractive yellow-gold color. The strike is typical of the issue, with some weakness on the centers and lower stars. Census: 8 in 55, 12 finer (2/10).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25GH, PCGS# 7724)
