    Choice XF 1839-C Quarter Eagle

    1839-C XF 45 PCGS. Repunched 39. The repunched date and the overdate are of approximately equal rarity with an estimated 7,400 pieces struck of the repunched variety out of a total mintage of 18,140 coins. The repunching is quite pronounced, as are the several die cracks on the obverse and reverse. This piece shows atypically strong central details but the peripheral stars are weak, as usual. Rather than the peculiar greenish-yellow color usually seen on this issue, this piece has a distinctive accent of rich reddish-gold color with deeper russet incrustations at the margins and surrounding some of the legends.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25G4, PCGS# 7699)
