    Borderline Uncirculated 1843-C Small Date, Crosslet 4 Quarter Eagle

    1843-C $2 1/2 Small Date, Crosslet 4 AU58 NGC. Winter 4-C. Die State III. The 26,064 quarter eagles that flowed from the presses at the Charlotte Mint in 1843 were not equally divided between the issue's two distinct subtypes. A sizable majority of these coins (23,076 pieces) displayed the large date logotype that made its debut in the Liberty quarter eagle series this year. A mere 2,988 1843-C quarter eagles, however, displayed the small date logotype that characterized the 1840-1842 C-mint quarter eagle deliveries. The latter has long been recognized as a separate and important issue in this long-lived series. It is also heralded as the rarest quarter eagle from the Charlotte Mint. This is an exceptional piece for the grade, since the bright semi-prooflike luster is virtually complete and there are no significant abrasions or planchet deficiencies. Not fully struck, but the details are not mushy as often encountered for pieces from this popular southern branch mint. Population: 13 in 58, 8 finer (4/04).(#7729) (NGC ID# 7HLG, PCGS# 7729)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
