    1843-C Quarter Eagle, Small Date, Crosslet 4
    Elusive Issue, XF Sharpness

    1843-C $2 1/2 Small Date, Crosslet 4 -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. XF. Variety 1. In the Small Date variety, as here, the 1 and 3 in the date are distant from the bust truncation, and there is a notable die crack from the neck of Liberty to the rim at 7:30, rather heavy on this piece. This XF piece is a tad bright from cleaning but appears to be mellowing down on surfaces that are yellow-gold on the high points and pale green in the fields. Nicer than it sounds, and an issue that is quite elusive, likely struck to the extent of only 3,000 pieces or so.
    From The Ohio Valley Collection.(Registry values: P2)
