    Choice About Uncirculated 1838-C Quarter Eagle

    1838-C $2 1/2 AU58 NGC. This is the first year of issue from the new Charlotte Mint. A total of 7,880 were struck and any survivors are eagerly sought out by collectors. The strike is sharp on Liberty's curls and they show just a bit of wear on the high points. Similar on the eagle, which is bold and complete, and shows no deficiencies. Starting to tone with a hint of coppery-gold near the rims, and very pleasing to the eye. Identifiable by a nick in the hair above the E in LIBERTY. The combined NGC and PCGS population reports show 22 coins graded this high with 18 pieces graded finer of this date.
