    Description

    Elusive 1839-C Overdate Quarter Eagle in AU 50

    1839-C AU 50 NGC. Overdate. While of approximately the same rarity as the repunched date, the overdate usually commands a small premium. What appears to be an area of planchet flaking on the cheek of Liberty is actually a die defect left over from 1838. This appears to be the third reverse of the year, with the second S in STATES repunched and the arrowheads merging into the CA of AMERICA. Well struck overall with rich green-gold color and numerous small field marks.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25G3, Variety PCGS# 97699, Base PCGS# 7699)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 89.92% Gold, 10.08% Copper
