    Description

    NGC 1838-C XF 45. The 1838-C is an issue that is doubly popular with collectors both because of it being the first quarter eagle struck at a branch mint and because of the obverse mintmark. The low mintage of only 7,800 pieces (the lowest in the Classic series) also adds a certain charm, and insures that the collector will purchase a coin of undisputed rarity. This a nice coin for the grade. The surfaces show a few handling marks consistent with the grade, and a short scratch is noted on the lower neck of Liberty and another in the reverse field above the eagle. The strike on the obverse is quite well detailed, and there is just a bit of softness (as usual) on the eagle on the reverse.
