    Description

    1844-C Quarter Eagle, MS61
    A Condition Rarity

    1844-C $2 1/2 MS61 PCGS. CAC. Variety 1. The only die pair for the year. A lustrous honey-gold specimen with distinctive green and rose overtones, this satiny specimen has a typical strike with design weakness in the usual locations, especially on the left (facing) leg on the reverse. The surfaces have few abrasions, and the overall eye appeal is exceptional. In his 2008 reference on Charlotte Mint gold, Doug Winter writes: "Due to a number of reasons, this date is typically found in lower grades than most other Charlotte quarter eagles." He estimates that only four to six Mint State examples of the 1844-C survive from a total existing population of 150 to 175 coins. Population: 2 in 61, 3 finer (8/11).
