Description & Analysis

While 11,622 pieces were struck, this date is scarcer than generally believed, especially in higher grades. The Mint was burned in July 1844 by a burglar and production was halted until early 1846. Because of this, 1844-C quarter eagles tend to have a lower survival rate than other dates of this era and most are found well worn. Only five Uncirculated 1844-C quarter eagles are believed known and there may only be 16-21 properly graded AUs.
