    1839-D Classic Head Quarter Eagle, Choice Extremely Fine

    1839-D $2 1/2 XF 45. The only Classic Head quarter eagle struck at the Dahlonega Mint, the '39-D is also the first issue of this denomination to flow from the presses of the Georgia facility. Although most often encountered in VF or XF levels of preservation, few survivors of this low mintage issue are as smooth as the present example. Save for a small nick on the upper obverse rim, both sides are free of mentionable distractions. The eagle's feathers are poorly defined, but the balance of the features display pleasing delineation for the grade. Orange-gold color rounds out the appearance of this popular D-mint example.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25G5, PCGS# 7700)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 89.92% Gold, 10.08% Copper
