    Condition Rarity 1840-C Quarter Eagle, MS62

    1840-C $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. Variety 1-A. One die variety is known to exist. Douglas Winter, in his Gold Coins of the Charlotte Mint, writes that: "The 1840-C quarter eagle is usually seen in Very Fine and low-end Extremely Fine grades. The date remains very rare in the higher About Uncirculated grades and it is extremely rare in Mint State." Winter estimates six to seven Uncirculated pieces extant. NGC and PCGS have certified 22 examples in Mint State, a number of which are likely resubmissions.
    The lustrous yellow-gold surfaces of this MS62 example exhibit relatively well struck design elements, though most of the star centers are weak. Several minute marks are scattered over each side, and what appears to be a planchet flaw is visible on Liberty's jaw. Census: 2 in 62, 3 finer (6/08).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25GB, PCGS# 7718)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
