Description

    Elegant AU55 1840-C Quarter Eagle

    1840-C $2 1/2 AU55 NGC. Variety 1-A. The 1840-C is the first year of the Liberty Head redesign by Christian Gobrecht. While the obverse makeover is obvious, the reverse was also slightly redesigned, and of course the mintmark was moved to the reverse, making this issue a first-year type. Winter notes that the issue is among the best-struck C-mint quarter eagles. Nearly 13,000 pieces were produced, but the issue is nonetheless rare in AU and extremely rare in Mint State. This Choice AU coin sports substantial eye appeal with considerable luminosity in the orange-tinged yellow-gold fields. Well struck and gorgeous.
