1840-D Liberty Quarter Eagle NGC AU55

This “D” Gets a Passing Grade

The Liberty Head quarter eagle series commenced in 1840 with a production of 3,532 D-mint coins. The 1840-D is tied with the 1854-D for third-rarest among all Dahlonega quarter eagles, and is the rarest in AU50 and finer. This coin was struck from shattered dies, showing bisecting cracks on each side. As is so often the case, this coin is much more lustrous than seen in our images. The NGC population is 8 with 8 higher.

1873 (Closed 3) Liberty Eagle NGC AU53

Very Rare

The 1873 Closed 3 (old name) or Close 3 (current nomenclature) coins were struck early in the year and the date logotype for all denominations was modified following complaints that the digit looked like an 8. Among Liberty eagles, the entire 800-coin mintage for the year was produced in January 1873, and none were minted with the modified Open 3 date style. Proof coins were preferred over Mint State coins in the 19th century, so no circulation strikes were saved at the time of issue, despite the low mintage. As a result, high grade survivors are non-existent. The NGC population is only 2 with 9 higher, none better than AU58.

1854-O Three Dollar Gold Piece NGC MS61

Very Rare Unc. O-mint

While 1854-D is a great rarity, more than a thousand 1854-O examples remain from the mintage of 24,000 pieces, typically in XF to AU grades. Mint State representatives are surprisingly rare, given the tendency of the public to set aside new designs and denominations during the introductory year of issue. In hand, this one is more of a yellow-gold than orange-gold color and much more lustrous than seen in our images. The NGC population is just 10 with 7 higher.

1847 Liberty Eagle NGC MS64

Very Rare, Dazzling, Near-Gem

The two highest mintage issues of the No Motto Liberty ten series are the 1847 and 1847-O. Something happened that year to increase production, and the mostly likely cause was the Spanish-American War, which continued throughout 1847. Despite a comparatively large production, the 1847 is usually seen in XF and AU grades, uncirculated examples are tough to come by and choice uncirculated ones are almost unheard of. This is the only MS64 graded by NGC with none higher (though they have also recognized a single MS64PL, as well). This exquisite representative boasts flashy, semi-prooflike fields and some pleasing cameo contrast on each side.

1918/7-D Buffalo Nickel NGC MS64

Among the Coolest Overdates

The Philadelphia Mint struck more than 32 million nickels in 1918, with Denver and San Francisco contributing another 8.3 and 4.8 million coins, respectively. While all three issues are generally plentiful, there exists among them a variety that is both intriguing and conditionally rare: the 1918/7-D. The overdate was created in the Philadelphia Mint engraving department when a working die was hubbed with two different dates. Due to the massive work load on the engraving department, it’s likely the overdate occurred as a mistake, and not a deliberate usage of an outdated obverse. Examples of the 1918/7-D are known in very early and late die states, indicating that this was a fresh die at the beginning of production and was used throughout a normal coinage period. The NGC population is only 15 with 4 higher.

1912 Saint Gaudens Double Eagle NGC PR65

Gem

As the various proof finishes offered by the Mint in the early 20th century became increasingly unpopular with the public, production totals dropped accordingly. Only 74 proof Saint-Gaudens double eagles were struck in 1912, using an innovative sandblast process in place of the earlier matte and Roman finishes. The sandblast finish created an even mustard coloration over both sides of the coin, with tiny sparkling facets that can be observed with magnification. This sparkle gives the surfaces a vibrant “life” to balance the deep monochromatic coloration. Unfortunately, the sandblast finish proved just as unpopular as the matte and Roman proofs of earlier years. It is likely that some of the coins went unsold and were melted after the end of the year.

1913 Saint Gaudens Double Eagle NGC MS65+

Just 1 Graded Higher

A relatively modest business-strike mintage of 168,838 Saint-Gaudens double eagles was accomplished at the Philadelphia Mint in 1913. The coins were produced in nine deliveries, spaced throughout the year. Most of the circulation-strike coins were sent to European and Latin American destinations, and Roger W. Burdette estimates about 5,000 examples have been repatriated from overseas sources in recent times. Most examples seen are in lower Mint State grades, with the expected number of bag-marks from rough storage and transport. This is a rare issue at the MS65 grade level, and finer coins are virtually unobtainable. In fact, the one we offer here is the only NGC MS65+, with just one (MS66) example graded higher.

1865 SS Republic Liberty Double Eagle NGC MS65

2 Graded Higher

Ex: S.S. Republic. From a smallish mintage of 351,175 pieces, the 1865 Liberty double eagle was a rare issue in high grade before the recovery of the S.S. Republic in 2003. Fortunately for present-day collectors, that famous shipwreck find yielded 320 examples of this issue, which graded AU50 to MS65. Consequently, Mint State examples can be found in today’s market with a little patience. Still, even today, the NGC population is only 22 (including 1 “Star” designated example) with 2 higher.

1839-C Classic Quarter Eagle NGC AU55

Sharp AU Charlotte $2.50

 While the 1839-C is one of the more frequently encountered Charlotte quarter eagles, it is disproportionately popular because it is a part of the Classic series. Only 18,140 pieces were produced, and of that number it is estimated perhaps 300 to 400 examples are known today in all grades.

1857-S Liberty Double Eagle NGC MS66

(Not SOS, but) SS Central America

Despite a mintage of 970,500 pieces, this was a rare issue in high grade before the advent of modern shipwreck finds. Like most Type One double eagles, the 1857-S was not difficult to locate in circulated grades, but Mint State specimens were extremely rare before thousands of high quality coins were salvaged from the wreck of the S.S. Central America. That famous shipwreck find made high grade Type One double eagles available to collectors for the first time. As Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth note, it “changed the landscape of collecting double eagles profoundly.” Seemingly always popular and in demand.
