Description:

1844-C Quarter Eagle, MS61
Challenging Issue in Mint State
1844-C $2 1/2 MS61 NGC. Variety 1. The only die pair for the year. A radiant yellow-gold example that has unusually strong central detail for this notoriously poorly produced issue, though the peripheral stars show more typical softness. Minimally abraded save for a flaw above and parallel to the eagle's left (facing) wing. Garrett and Guth note: "The 1844-C Liberty Head quarter eagle is scarce in all grades and prohibitively rare in high grade. Just a few coins have reached the Mint State level." As one of them, this MS61 survivor must be considered among the finest known. Census: 5 in 61, 5 finer (9/11).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25GU, PCGS# 7735)
