    1839-D Quarter Eagle, Choice AU
    Important Dahlonega Type

    1839-D $2 1/2 AU55 PCGS. CAC. Winter 1-A, Variety 26, R.3. The fact that 1839-D the quarter eagle is the first issue of this denomination struck at the Dahlonega branch mint, the only Classic Head D-mint quarter eagle, and the only Georgia two and a half dollar with an obverse mintmark contributes significantly to its popularity with collectors. However, there are only 200 to 250 pieces to go around. Doug Winter adds: "Properly graded About Uncirculated-55 to About Uncirculated-58 pieces are rare and this date is very rare in Uncirculated." The centers are impressively strong on this orange-gold Choice AU representative. A pinscratch that extends upward from Liberty's chin into the field is the only singular mark.
    From The Ellijay Georgia Collection. (Registry values: P4)
