Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Most 1841-C Liberty Head quarter eagles seen are decently struck, except for the centers of the obverse. The date is scarce in any grade. There have been far fewer of the date sold at auction than the 1840-C quarter eagles. Just a few are offered for sale each year. An unusual number of coins have been graded About Uncirculated. This is probably explained by resubmissions, as the number of coins seen would not support such a high number. The finest the authors have seen was the John Jay Pittman coin, which was sold raw but subsequently, graded NGC MS 62. The coin was purchased by Pittman in 1956 for $52.50 and sold in 1998 for $41,250.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
