1855-C Liberty Quarter Eagle PCGS MS62

You Should “C” This

A paltry mintage of 3,677 quarter eagles was accomplished by the Charlotte Mint in 1855. That production total is the smallest from the North Carolina facility for any individual date in the series (the 1843-C Small Date coins represent only part of the mintage for 1843). Perhaps no more than 100 1855-C quarter eagles are extant in all grades, though inflated population figures might lead one to believe otherwise.   Mint State specimens are very rare and this is one of just five at this grade level with but three higher. When tilted just slightly, this coin displays lighter color and considerably more luster than indicated in our pictures.

(1831-1834) Bechtler $2.50

K-8 Beaded, with 75G PCGS MS62

Throughout the entire Bechtler coinage era, lasting from 1831 until about 1850, the family coined nine varieties of $2.50 gold pieces. This coin represents the K-8 variety, with RUTHERFORD in a small circle in the center of the obverse and the weight 75 G. below the 20 C. Based on current rarity ratings published in the March 2017 Kagin’s catalog featuring the Dr. Chris Allan Collection, no more than 200 examples survive from all nine mulings. The average grade of all PCGS certified Bechtler quarter eagles is AU53. The present example is far finer than the typical survivor and is the second best of the Kagin-8 die pairing that PCGS has examined. The finest known example realized $123,375 in the March 2017 offering of the Allan Collection. Thus, this coin has a PCGS population of only 1 with 1 graded higher. Lighter in color and far more lustrous in hand than seen in our images.

1899 Liberty Quarter Eagle PCGS MS68

The Only One

From a mintage of 27,200 coins, this is the sole example to be graded this high by PCGS and one of just twenty-one pieces for the entire Liberty Quarter Eagle series. The strike is sharp, the color is attractive and the surfaces exhibit exemplary mint frost.

1834 Classic Quarter Eagle NGC MS65

A Real Classic

The 1834 remains the most plentiful Classic Head quarter eagle issue in high grade, despite its mintage of little more than 112,000 pieces being significantly lower than the production totals of the following two years. In the years leading up to 1834, gold coinage did not actively circulate in the United States, as the coins contained more bullion value than their face value, prompting individuals to melt the coins down at a profit. In 1834, William Kneass’s design marked a reduction in weight from 4.37 gm to 4.18 gm. The weight reduction returned the gold value of the quarter eagle to its face value, allowing this denomination to once again circulate domestically. This one is sharply detailed and highly lustrous with flashy, semi-prooflike surfaces. The NGC population is just 15 (two of which are star coins) with two higher.

1838-C Quarter Eagle NGC AU58

Gone with the Wind – Charlotte (Mint)

The 1838-C quarter eagle is an extremely popular coin among early gold enthusiasts. It is a first-year-of-issue and one of just two Charlotte quarter eagles that use the Classic Head, obverse mintmark design. All known examples exhibit a re-punched mintmark, that was initially entered too low. Writing in his Charlotte Mint gold coins reference (2008), Doug Winter says the 1838-C quarter eagle “Usually seen in VF and EF grades, it becomes very scarce in properly graded AU55 to AU58 and rare in Uncirculated.” NGC has recognized only a dozen uncirculated pieces.

Nearly Mint State Bechtler (Center Circle) $2.50 PCGS/CAC AU58

Rare

At a time when federal specie was virtually unseen in circulation, the Bechtlers successfully converted the gold mined in and around Rutherfordton and beyond into coinage suitable for local commerce, and of consistently high quality. It was a group of local miners who first petitioned Christopher Bechtler, a respected jeweler, to perform this assaying and coining service.  According to Don Kagin, “this was quite agreeable to Bechtler, for on July 2, 1831, and for several weeks thereafter, he ran an advertisement which announced that he was ready to coin the products of the mines into $2.50 and $5.00 pieces … .” Later, Bechtler would be the first to put gold dollars into the channels of American commerce.  PCGS has graded just 10 in all grades combined for this variety. Of those, this is the only AU58 with just 3 higher.

1906 Liberty Quarter Eagle NGC PR66 Cameo

Glittering, Captivating

 Cameo proof gold coinage from the post-1902 period — the year in which the Mint eliminated its earlier production method that produced deeply contrasted surfaces between reflective fields and frosted devices — is quite rare and seldom seen. The example herein offered exhibits deeply mirrored fields, which contrast beautifully with the frosted devices.

1903 Liberty Quarter Eagle NGC PR66

Glittering, Eye-Catching

The 1903 Liberty quarter eagle claims a mintage of 197 pieces and the issue has a fairly high survival rate. Unfortunately, the population data has been inflated by numerous resubmissions and crossovers, but probably more than 100 examples of this issue are still extant. The Mint switched to an all-brilliant finish for proof coins in 1902, eliminating the frosted devices and severely reducing the popular cameo contrast seen on proofs of earlier years. This Gem is a typical example of the new finish, with razor-sharp definition on the design elements and deeply reflective fields, but only modest field-device contrast. The NGC population is just 9 (one of which has been designated “Star”) with 8 higher.

1910 Indian Quarter Eagle NGC MS66

Pristine Looking, Golden-Orange

The 1910 Indian quarter eagle is one of the better-struck issues in the early part of the series, frequently seen with rich luster and bold design elements. The challenge comes in finding an example with minimal abrasions, as the typical coin is affected by numerous faint ticks and surface grazes that limit the grade, as well as the eye appeal. This particular representative, therefore, will be a refreshing reward for the patient buyer. The NGC population is just 18 with none graded higher.

1906 Liberty Quarter Eagle NGC MS68

Tied for Highest Graded

David Akers offered a concise, two-sentence comment about the 1906 quarter eagle in his 1975 reference when he simply wrote, “A common date. Generally available in uncirculated condition or proof.” The statement holds true today, but with a disclaimer: In the highest grades such as this, the 1906 issue is distinctly rare. And probably needless to say, the surfaces are exquisitely preserved. The present example is tied with 2 others for the highest graded by NGC.
