Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1839-C quarter eagle has a low mintage and is quite scarce. This date enjoys intense demand from collectors assembling sets of gold coins from the Charlotte Mint and has always borne a substantial premium. Two obverse dies were used this year, one with a defective 9 (traditionally called an overdate) and one with a clearly repunched 9. Mint State examples are exceedingly rare, led by a single NGC MS 63 example. Many coins seen have rough surfaces and finding one with original surfaces can be quite challenging.
