Splendid Choice AU 1855-D
1855-D $2 1/2 AU55 PCGS. Variety 18-M. Ex: North Georgia.
The 1855-D quarter eagle is, according to branch mint guru Doug
Winter, the "second rarest coin struck at the Dahlonega Mint,"
second only to the 1856-D quarter eagle that follows it. This is a
simply splendid 1855-D that certainly appears choice for the grade.
The strike is well executed, and some prooflike luster appears in
the fields, along with some light hazel-gray accents. Light wear
appears on the high points, and there are few abrasions other than
a small patch of ticks in the left obverse field, before Liberty's
face. In Choice AU grade, this piece appears tied with a few others
at the lower end of the Condition Census. Population: 9 in 55, 3
Two and a Half Dollar
