    1842-D Quarter Eagle, Choice XF
    Rarely Seen in Any Grade

    1842-D $2 1/2 XF45 PCGS. Variety 3-F. The 1842-D is one of the great rarities of the Dahlonega quarter eagle series. Fewer than 100 pieces are believed known. Doug Winter has written that none are known in Mint State, although NGC records a few submissions that fine. This date is most often seen in XF and low-end AU grades. The present Choice XF example displays deep orange-gold and olive coloration, with light, scattered contact marks that are consistent with the grade. Dirt clings to the reverse crevices, attesting to the originality of the surfaces. The date is boldly repunched in this early die state. Housed in a green label holder. Population: 16 in 45, 27 finer (11/19).
    From The Ellijay Georgia Collection. (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25GJ, PCGS# 7725)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
