Description

Scarce 1844-C Quarter Eagle, AU50

1844-C $2 1/2 AU50 PCGS. Variety 1, the only known die pairing for the year. This is a somewhat unusual coin, as the obverse and reverse are mismatched. The obverse is much finer and much cleaner than usually seen on 1844-C quarter eagles. The reverse, though, is softly struck and shows several planchet flaws. The fields show some residual brightness, a common trait on C- and D-mint gold. The overall rarity of the 1844-C is 10th out of the 20-coin series, and the original mintage was limited to 11,622 pieces, of which 150-175 coins are believed to exist today in all grades.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25GU, PCGS# 7735)
