    1859-D Quarter Eagle, MS61
    Absolute and Condition Rarity

    1859-D $2 1/2 MS61 NGC. Variety 21-M. An Uncirculated representative of this popular final year D-mint. Only 2,244 pieces were struck of this final-year issue, and a mere 120-140 coins are believed known in all grades. The surfaces on this coin are bright and semireflective with lighter yellow-gold coloration and the usual soft strike in the centers. There are no planchet distractions worthy of mention and the most recognizable post-minting feature is a short hairline scratch that extends horizontally from the base of Liberty's neck to a point just above star 1. The 1859-D quarter eagle is seldom offered for sale in mint condition. Census: 7 in 61, 1 finer (2/12).
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2003), lot 4713; FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 4012.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25JM, PCGS# 7789)
