Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Based on population reports, it is clear that the 1843-C, Large Date, Plain 4, Liberty Head quarter eagle is much more available than the Small Date variety. Examples of the date are seen from well-worn to at least one Gem. Most of the coins are well worn, and the date becomes increasingly rare in the higher states of preservation. Probably 150 to 200 examples are known for the date and variety. The date is sharply recut. On the reverse, the mintmark is larger than on the Small Date, and it is doubled to the left. Most coins are weakly struck on the central portions of the obverse, sometimes severely so.

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.
