Description

1839-D Two and a Half, MS62
Only D-Mint Classic Head Issue
Just Four Coins Finer at PCGS

1839-D $2 1/2 MS62 PCGS. Variety 1-A. The only Classic Head quarter eagle from the Dahlonega Mint, the 1839-D is an extremely important issue for mintmark type collectors, as well as series specialists. The 1839-D claims a mintage of 13,674 pieces, and examples in Mint State condition are very rare in today's market. Doug Winter estimates a surviving population of 150-175 specimens in all grades, with seven to nine Mint State pieces still extant. This coincides well with the PCGS population data, which shows six coins certified in MS62 and four examples finer (3/11).
The present coin is a rare MS62 specimen, with attractive orange-gold surfaces and bright mint luster. The design elements are strongly impressed, with razor-sharp detail on Liberty's hair and just a touch of softness at the junction of the shield and eagle's wing on the reverse. The weak branch stem that extends over the right side of the D in the denomination identifies this coin as a representative of the more-available Variety 1-A.(Registry values: P4) (NGC ID# 25G5, PCGS# 7700)
