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.

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.

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.

1833 Capped Head Quarter Eagle NGC MS61

Rare Unc.

As expected from a coin with only 4,160 pieces produced, many known mint state examples have semi-prooflike fields as almost all the mintage is essentially a first-strike. Fortunately, this one is no exception in that regard. A mere 60 to 80 pieces of this date are believed known. Mass meltings account for the scarcity of this and other early quarter eagle and half eagle issues. The NGC population is just 8 with 14 higher.

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.

1839-D Classic Quarter Eagle NGC AU58

Rare, Nearly Unc.

The Dahlonega Mint opened for business in 1838, for the purpose of providing a coinage facility for miners of Southern gold and to service the local economy. As a result, coins produced at the Georgia branch mint circulated extensively. The first gold pieces struck at the Dahlonega Mint in 1838 were half eagles. Quarter eagles followed in 1839. In both cases, the first-year issue is a one-year type showing William Kneass’s Classic Head Liberty design. The NGC population is just 18 with 14 higher.

1839/39-C Liberty Quarter Eagle NGC AU53

“C”-ing Double “39’s”

The 3 and 9 in the date are noticeably recut north on this variety, one of the scarcer varieties for the issue. Doug Winter estimates as many as 300 to 400 examples survive from a mintage of 18,140 coins, although the population thins considerably in the upper AU range, and true Mint State coins are rare.

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.
