    Description

    Lustrous AU58 1839-C Quarter Eagle, Variety 22
    Boldly Cracked Late Reverse Die State

    1839-C $2 1/2 AU58 NGC. Breen-6150, Variety-22, R.4. Intense mint luster remains on each side of this near-Mint State 1839-C quarter eagle, one that shows excellent eye appeal. The yellow-gold surfaces deepen to amber near the obverse stars, and the few ticks and scrapes visible are not overly distracting. A small planchet void at star 13 appears to be as struck. The late-state reverse shows two bold die cracks, one paralleling the eagle's left (facing) wing, the second running from the left shield point upward into the field. Census: 61 in 58, 17 finer (12/12).
    From The Flagg Family Collection.(Registry values: P5)
