Low-Mintage 1859-D Quarter Eagle, MS611859-D $2 1/2 MS61 NGC. Variety 21-M. Sole die pair for the year and the last Dahlonega quarter eagle issue, which makes this low-mintage (2,244 pieces) date immensely popular with Southern gold enthusiasts. Mint State examples are condition rarities, and any such coin would make the Condition Census of Doug Winter's 2003 edition of Gold Coins of the Dahlonega Mint, though known populations have increased since then, at least partly due to resubmissions. This is a radiant yellow-orange example that shows few of the severe abrasions often associated with the issue, though a number of wispy marks on the obverse preclude a finer designation. Census: 6 in 61, 1 finer (12/10).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25JM, PCGS# 7789)
