Description

Terrific 1855-C Quarter Eagle

1855-C $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. Variety 16-I. This example comes from a mintage of just 3,677 coins, the lowest annual production total of any Charlotte Mint quarter eagle. Most of the design elements are sharply detailed, with only slight weakness evident among the top stars on the obverse, and the eagle's left facing leg and right claw on the reverse. The planchet is exceptional for this issue, with none of the usual flaws. In fact, every aspect of this remarkable Mint State piece far exceeds the typical appearance for this later C-mint quarter eagle. Both sides exhibit satiny luster with attractive honey-gold color accented by wisps of pale orange. A small rim break on the outer reverse rim below the denomination is a diagnostic feature of all genuine examples of this issue. An excellent representative for the Charlotte specialist. Census: 4 in 62, 2 finer (7/07).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25J5, PCGS# 7775)
