    Description

    1839 AU 58 PCGS. (Actually all 1839-P quarter eagles are overdates, but the insert from PCGS makes no mention of this). A very scarce and underrated issue in the Classic series, the '39/8-P is almost as difficult to locate as the 1838-C and the 1839/8-D. It is usually only seen in lower grades and Choice AU pieces are infrequently seen. This piece is generally well struck with strong central details. There are a couple of smaller abrasions seen on both sides. The fields are mostly bright with a lemon-yellow patina that is most attractive.
