    1844-C Quarter Eagle, Lustrous MS61
    Above-Average Coin for Issue and Grade

    1844-C $2 1/2 MS61 PCGS. Variety 1. A small emission of 11,622 pieces, years of circulation in the South prior to the Civil War, and indifferent production at the Charlotte Mint, have served to make the 1844-C one of the most difficult quarter eagles from that mint to acquire in Mint State. On the present piece, the strike on the stars and eagle is typical for the issue, but the luster is extensive, bright, and somewhat prooflike. Honey-gold color laced with traces of lavender and light green is consistent throughout both sides. A couple of pinpoint ticks show on the cheek, but these are appropriate for the grade, especially since the remainder of the surfaces are splendidly clean. This is really a nice, above-average coin for the issue and the grade designation. Population: 3 in 61, 3 finer (11/13).
    Ex: San Francisco Signature (Heritage, 7/2005), lot 10316; Dallas Signature (Heritage, 11/2005), lot 2369; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2006), 3417.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25GU, PCGS# 7735)
