1821 Capped Head Quarter Eagle PCGS MS60

Rare Unc.

 It had been 13 years since the last quarter eagles were coined until this denomination was resumed again. Production remained low with 6,448 produced in 1821. And only 17,042 pieces were coined for the entire type! As John Dannreuther points out: “Besides the usual factors that remove coins from circulation–wear, loss, and so on–the early gold issues faced another factor that doomed many of them. Pre-1834 old coins were melted after the June 28, 1834 passage of the act reducing the weight of gold coins.” The 1821 quarter eagle is the first issue of this design, and the entire mintage is from a single die pair. Because so few business strikes were coined after the proofs, nearly all have reflective surfaces as on this coin. Its color is more yellow-gold, as opposed to the orange-gold seen in our images. More importantly, it looks much more appealing than expected for the assigned grade. The PCGS population is 2 with 11 higher.

1862 Liberty Quarter Eagle NGC MS64

Rare, Choice Unc. Civil War Issue

Although the 1862 quarter eagle has a mintage that tops 98,000 coins — one of the higher production totals of the period — Mint State examples are still rare in all grades. Most such pieces are heavily bag-marked, and relatively few grade higher than MS62. The finest graded are one PCGS 64+ and one NGC MS64+. The NGC population is just 3 with 1 higher. In hand, this example is more lustrous and less reddish-gold in hue than seen in our images.

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.

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.

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.

1856-O Liberty Quarter Eagle NGC MS62

Mint $2.50 Rarity

The New Orleans Mint struck only 21,100 examples of the 1856-O quarter eagle, a denomination that was unloved and neglected in favor of the half eagle and (after 1849) the double eagle throughout much of its history. San Francisco, in only its third year of operation, also struck 1856-S quarter eagles for the first time since opening, and managed to best New Orleans by a margin of more than 3 to 1. Whether these comparative mintages were an early sign of the increasing decrepitude that would overtake the Southern mint by the early 20th century, or merely an indication of the continuation of the hard-money tradition of the Old West that began a few years earlier with the Gold Rush of 1849, is not readily known today. Nonetheless, 1856-O quarter eagles are quite elusive in Mint State. This is one of only four so-graded by NGC with none 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.

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.

1908 Indian Quarter Eagle NGC PR68

1 of Only 2 So-Graded

With the new coinage designs of 1907 and 1908, the mint recognized these coins could not be produced by the conventional brilliant proofing method. Their solution was to sandblast the coins, producing a matte surface; a finish that had been applied to some mint medals for decades. However, the mint’s main customers for proofs were coin collectors, and collectors were generally not familiar with the matte proofing technique or appearance. The result was general dislike by the collecting community and dwindling sales for proof gold until the final year in 1915. There were 236 proof quarter eagles produced, and it is estimated that 100 to 120 pieces are extant today. The surfaces on this piece border on perfection. This is one of only two so-graded by NGC, with none higher.
