Description

Choice XF 1855-D Quarter Eagle
The Scarcest D-Mint Two and a Half

1855-D $2 1/2 XF45 PCGS. Variety 18-M. One of just 1,123 pieces coined of this issue, easily the most difficult condition rarity of the Dahlonega quarter eagles. Only 45-55 pieces are believed known in all grades, and the 1855-D is first in the Dahlonega quarter eagle series in both overall rarity and high grade rarity. This is a pleasing copper-gold XF coin with a notable Mint-made planchet lamination that extends from the obverse rim at 8 o'clock almost to Liberty's ear, but such laminations are commonly seen on 1855-D quarter eagles. Otherwise, the surfaces are free from any distractions. The striking details are weak as usual, with die crumbling seen on the denticles on each side.
From The Lucy Llewellyn Collection of Southern Gold.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 7J2U, PCGS# 7776)
