$2.50 Liberty Quarter Eagles
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
9038   Image$2.50 1842 O (#7726).

AU58 NGC (# 4496102001)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $5,940

ESTIMATE: $3,750

MIN. BID W/O BP: $3,000

CONDITION NOTES: Deep orange-gold flashing crimson in angled light, remarkably strong and detailed strike which shows detail of Liberty and Eagle's feathers rarely seen on the examples we surveyed, including Mint State, barest traces of marks in field which we're imagining to justify the AU58 grade -- we would put this beautiful and scarce 1842-0 Quarter Eagle up against most of the examples with Mint State grades -- from the New Orleans Gold Hoard (NGC)

COMMENTS: Only 19,800 Quarter Eagles were struck at the New Orleans in 1842. It is decidedly scarce, with most examples in XF or lower grades, and many have weakness in the central areas of the strikes. In choice AU or MS grades, PCGS reports 9 AU58 (14 higher) and NGC 23 AU58 (15 higher). (Image) (image2)

9039   Image$2.50 1848 C (#7750).

AU53 PCGS (# 82462339)

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $3,750

ESTIMATE: $2,400

MIN. BID W/O BP: $2,000

CONDITION NOTES: Brilliant yellow-gold luster and reflective surface, unusually sharp strike with much more detail in bust than typically found on 1848-C pieces, a couple of faint shallow marks, but this seems very conservative graded at AU53

COMMENTS: Only 16,788 Quarter Eagles were minted at Charlotte, North Carolina, in 1848. As Garrett notes (NGC website): "The coins are difficult to grade and almost appear to be damaged. The strike is particularly weak on the central portions of the obverse around the word LIBERTY. A small portion of the mintage was sharply struck, and these coins command a premium."

CDN/CPG® VALUE: $5,000

ESTIMATE: $3,250

MIN. BID W/O BP: $2,500

CONDITION NOTES: Lovely honey-gold luster and semi-reflective surface, as sharp a strike as one can expect (typical slight weakness in the wing tips), a couple of faint shallow marks, overall beautful eye appeal which exceeds its grade, from the New Orleans Gold Hoard (NGC)

COMMENTS: 148,000 Quarter Eagles were minted at New Orleans in 1851. Although Circulated examples are available, Mint State 1851-Os are scarce, with NGC reporting 24 in MS61 (15 higher). (Image) (image2)
