Attractive AU58 1842-D Quarter Eagle1842-D $2 1/2 AU58 PCGS. Variety 3-E. Only one variety for the year with a total mintage of 4,643 pieces, of which perhaps 60 to 65 are known according to Doug Winter, although the population reports would support a number closer to 100-150 pieces. There is a Mint-made depression on the cheek of Liberty near the ear, as often seen on this date and mint. The surfaces are attractive with minimal contact marks from circulation. Identifiable by a nick located at the bottom of Liberty's neck, above the truncation line and above and between the 18 of the date. This particular coin is an early die state, with recutting found below the 18 of the date, and most importantly the strike is sharp for the issue as all stars show their central radial lines and the eagle's feathers and claws are clearly defined. In high grades as seen here, this date is one of the scarcest of the Dahlonega quarter eagles, and is considered third most difficult of the 20 issues in the Dahlonega quarter eagle series to locate in high grade. The combined NGC and PCGS Population Reports tally 16 coins graded this high, and just 2 pieces seen finer (11/05). An opportunity for the specialist.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25GJ, PCGS# 7725)
