Description

    1843-C Small Date AU 58 PCGS. Struck from a cracked and swollen obverse die, as always, with a bulge visible at the tip of the neck. This usually affects the quality of strike on the reverse but on this coin, the reverse detail is as sharp as on any piece we can recall. The surfaces have a slightly reflective texture with superb, deep, original orange-gold and greenish color. This is among the finest known examples of this rare variety.
    Only 2,988 1843-C Small Date quarter eagles were struck. This is the rarest Charlotte quarter eagle with just 50 to 60 coins known. Higher grade specimens are more available than generally reported with as many as a dozen AUs known in addition to 3 or 4 in Mint State. The present example is clearly in the Condition Census and it is notable as one of the few 1843-C quarter eagles in any grade that has not been scrubbed. This coin has an excellent pedigree. It was last sold as lot 1611 in Mid-American's 1992 GNA sale and was earlier lot 125 in the Eliasberg Collection Sale (Bowers and Ruddy, 10/82). (NGC ID# 7HLG, PCGS# 7729)
