    Description

    Original AU58 1838-C Quarter Eagle

    1838-C $2 1/2 AU58 NGC. Winter 1-A. The 1838-C is popular not only because of the obverse mintmark placement but also because it is the first of two Quarter Eagles with the Classic design. Scarce in all grades, we are especially fortunate to be able to present three high grade examples of this scarce issue in the Ashland City Collection. This piece is sharply struck in the centers with some softness evident around the peripheries. The bright green-gold color of the planchet has taken on a pronounced reddish-coppery patina that adds even more visual appeal to this scarce first-year issue.
    From the Ashland City Collection.
