    The Finest Known 1845-D Quarter Eagle, Ex: Bass

    1845-D $2 1/2 MS63 NGC. Variety 6-I. Reverse of 1844. The only variety known for this year.
    Production of quarter eagles remained relatively high in the middle years of this decade. Just under 20,000 1845-D quarter eagles were struck, of which around 200 pieces are known today. The 1845-D ranks 14th of 20 issues in terms of its overall rarity, but it jumps to the 11th spot in high grades. There are around three dozen known in AU, but the 1845-D is extremely rare in properly graded Uncirculated. In fact, we are aware of only three Uncirculated pieces: the Duke's Creek coin, the Green Pond: 1021 coin (graded MS62 by PCGS when it was last sold by Heritage in the January 2004 FUN auction), and the Chestatee: 7643 coin (graded MS62 by PCGS) that is now owned by a Kansas specialist.
    This beautiful piece is characterized by soft yellow-gold color atop clean, lustrous surfaces. It shows a typical strike for the date, with some weakness at the centers; the borders are fully detailed. The surfaces show no marks of significance.
    When last offered in the Bass sale in October 1999, this piece set an all-time auction record for the date, bringing $26,450. It will be interesting to see what it realizes today.
    Ex: 1975 ANA Sale (Superior, 8/75), lot 376; Harry Bass Collection (Bowers and Merena, 10/99), lot 376; Hancock and Harwell.
    From The Duke's Creek Collection of Dahlonega Gold.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25GX, PCGS# 7738)
