Description & Analysis

Although often lumped with the 1844-1848 Dahlonega issues, the 1849-D is actually a much scarcer coin. In fact, it is eclipsed only by the 1840-1842 trio in terms of rarity among Dahlonega quarter eagles from this decade. There are just four Uncirculated examples currently known.
