    Near-Mint 1839-C Quarter Eagle

    1839-C $2 1/2 AU58 NGC. Breen-6150, McCloskey-C, Variety 2, R.4. The mintmark is centered over the space between the 8 and 3 in the date, with a die crack passing just to its right. Coins that combine the allure of Southern gold with the old-style Classic Head design are in high demand from a broad range of collectors, and the 1839-C quarter eagle is no exception. This radiant near-Mint piece has bold gold-orange luster with only slight rub on the softly struck high points. A handful of scattered abrasions are consistent with brief circulation. NGC has graded 17 numerically finer pieces (1/10), though this number is likely inflated by resubmissions.
    From The South Texas Collection.(Registry values: P5)
