Description

1846-D Quarter Eagle, MS60
Very Rare Variety 8-L

1846-D $2 1/2 MS60 NGC. Variety 8-L. Only 19,303 quarter eagles were struck at the Dahlonega Mint in 1846, with four varieties known for the date. Doug Winter estimates a surviving population of 175-200 pieces in all grades, with 4-5 examples extant in Mint State. The present coin represents the very rare Variety 8-L, distinguished by the high position of the date, with the 6 far from the denticles. Variety 8-L was only discovered when a harshly cleaned VF specimen was offered as lot 1753 of the John Jay Pittman Collection in 1998. A few other examples have turned up since the Pittman coin surfaced, but this Mint State example is the finest specimen of this rare variety Heritage has been privileged to offer. The surfaces are greenish-gold, with semiprooflike reflectivity. The devices are sharply rendered, and clashmarks show plainly in the upper reverse field, above both wings. This offering represents an important opportunity for the Southern gold specialist. Census: 4 in 60, 11 finer (11/10).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25H3, PCGS# 7742)
