Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: As with most of the early quarter eagles struck in the 1840s, the 1841-D Liberty Head issue is usually found well worn. With a small mintage of just 4,164 coins, the issue saw extensive circulation in most cases. Although most known examples are circulated, a few Mint State coins have survived. The finest of these is the NGC MS 63 coin from the Duke’s Creek Collection, which last sold at auction in March 2010 for $48,875. Most issues of the period are very poorly made, yet this date is usually seen well struck. It is not uncommon for the date to be found with extensive die breaks on both the obverse and reverse.
