    Important 1842-D Quarter Eagle, MS61

    1842-D $2 1/2 MS61 NGC. Variety 3-F. Only one die marriage is known for the issue, hardly a surprise since a mere 4,643 pieces were struck. This example was an early emission from the dies, since repunching is apparent beneath the bases of the 18 in the date. The strike is pleasantly sharp, with only unimportant softness noted on the shield lines and the curl beneath the ear. Minor, shallow, and mint-made planchet flaws are present near star 12, above the eagle's left (facing) shoulder and head, and beside the R in AMERICA. The borders display bright cartwheel luster, while the fields are mildly prooflike. The surfaces are remarkably free of identifiable marks. Census: 4 in 61, 1 finer (1/08).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25GJ, PCGS# 7725)
