Description

1855-D Quarter Eagle, AU53
Exceptionally Low-Mintage Rarity
Only 1,123 Pieces Struck

1855-D $2 1/2 AU53 NGC. Variety 18-M. The rarity of the 1855-D quarter eagle is attributable to its extraordinarily low mintage of only 1,123 pieces. Its rarity is only exceeded by the 1856-D, which had an even lower production run (874 coins). Only 45-55 coins are believed extant in all grades, and predictably AU examples are of the highest rarity with only 10-12 pieces believed known. Several AU55s are tied at the lower end of the Condition Census. This attractive AU53 has slight high-point friction and there are noticeable remnants of mint luster remaining, especially around the reverse devices. The strike is soft in the centers, a somewhat unusual occurrence since most 1855-D quarter eagles are stronger in the centers than the margins. Deep reddish-gold color is seen over most of each side. Each side is minimally abraded, but several planchet voids are scattered over the rims on both sides.
