Description

Rare 1842-C Quarter Eagle, VF30

1842-C $2 1/2 VF30 PCGS. Variety 3-B, the only known variety. The 1842-C is one of the rarest Charlotte quarter eagles, and one of the rarest coins of any denomination ever struck at this mint. Yellow-gold surfaces give off a faint greenish cast, and exhibit generally well defined motifs, which is unusual for this issue that is generally poorly struck (Douglas Winter, 1998). A few traces of luster remain. We note a few small indentations, but the surfaces are better than seen on most examples, for as Winter notes: "Almost every known piece is very heavily marked with numerous deep, detracting abrasions in the fields. It is common to see examples with deep scratches or gouges as well as serious marks on the rims." Housed in a green-label holder.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25GH, PCGS# 7724)
