Description

Rare 1856-D Quarter Eagle, AU Details

1856-D $2 1/2 --Improperly Cleaned--NCS. AU Details. Variety 19-M. According to Winter: "The 1856-D has the lowest mintage figure of any coin struck at the Dahlonega Mint. It is also the only issue from Dahlonega which has a mintage of fewer than 1,000." From the original mintage of 874 pieces, perhaps 40 to 45 coins still exist. This piece is actually fairly attractive, for the issue, although it does present the usual soft striking details for which the 1856-D is famous. This includes several irregularities along the obverse rim. There are no distracting marks on either side, however, and hairlines in the fields from improper cleaning are very faint.
From The R.M. Phillips Limited Partnership Collection.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25J9, PCGS# 7779)
