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.

1830 Capped Head Quarter Eagle NGC MS62

Rare Unc. Reduced Diameter

The story of the 1830 quarter eagles is a virtual carbon copy of the first year of this variety – the 1829. The production was a low-mintage affair, in this case totaling 4,540 coins, a slight uptick from the previous year. Only a single die pair and a single die state are known, since so few examples were struck. This is an extremely short lived variety (with a reduced diameter), spanning only the years 1829-1834. Representatives of each date are difficult to locate in any grade. Though not apparent in our images, this one is bright and flashy.

1907 Liberty Quarter Eagle PCGS PR66 CAM

The Mint struck 154 proof quarter eagles in 1907, marking the end of the Liberty Head type. About two thirds of these exist today, and many in remarkable states of preservation. The end of the type may have prompted more examples to be preserved than in other years, but the unappealing matte proofs of the following year likely also spurred collectors to more carefully preserve the last of the brilliant mirror proofs.

This coin serves as a good example that the phrase “A picture is worth a thousand words” is not always true. In this particular instance, the coin is more yellow-gold (as opposed to orange-gold) than shows in our images. In addition to that, if you tilt it even slightly, you will see considerably more obverse frost and contrast than is apparent in our photo. Said differently, this example is absolutely stunning! The PCGS population is 9 with 9 higher.

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. Listed at $52,500 in the NGC price guide.

1837-42 Bechtler $2.50 NGC AU58

1 of only 13 For All grades by NGC

This is the 70g. 20c variety. As early as the spring of 1831, Christopher Bechtler formulated a plan to mint quarter eagles and five dollar gold pieces at his Rutherfordton, North Carolina private mint. The elder Bechtler realized that a local minting operation was needed for native Carolina and Georgia gold dust — which otherwise had to travel to Philadelphia for assaying and minting — providing local miners a more cost-effective option while satisfying the critical need for cash in local commerce. NGC has graded only 13 pieces for all grades combined, only 6 of which have graded higher than the one offered here. This example is lighter and brighter than seen in our images. Listed at $20,000 in the CDN CPG and $21,200 in the NGC price guide.
