Description:
Sharp 1845-D Quarter Eagle, MS61
1845-D $2 1/2 MS61 PCGS. Variety 6-I. Very rare in high grades, with likely fewer than a dozen known in this MS61 level at both services combined. A scrape along Liberty's nose and cheek appears to be the primary grade determinant, although a small planchet indentation is noted near the rim at 3 o'clock on the obverse. Elsewhere, the coin just shows the light abrasions and minor hairlines that characterize most examples of the issue. Moderate die clashing appears on the reverse, along with some curious parallel die lines that pass from the last S in STATES under the eagle's wing to the rim. The strike is pleasing: Despite the minor softness on the curl over Liberty's ear, all of the reverse details and the remainder of the obverse is well brought up. The pretty orange-gold surfaces are faintly reflective. According to the Condition Census in Winter's 2003 edition, this piece would qualify for a fourth-place tie with an MS61 NGC piece. Population: 4 in 61, 3 finer (2/09).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25GX, PCGS# 7738)
