    1849-C Quarter Eagle, AU50
    Bold Definition

    1849-C $2 1/2 AU50 NGC. Variety 1. Specialist Doug Winter suggests a survival rate of about 1.5% for the 1849-C quarter eagle, or 125 to 150 of the 10,220 coins struck. The surfaces of this AU50 representative are bright wheat-gold with traces of reflectivity. Strike definition is bold, the only exception being the feathers on the eagle's left (facing) leg. Scattered flecks and hairlines appear throughout, but a single dig above the eagle's head is the sole individually noteworthy abrasion.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 7HRT, PCGS# 7753)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
