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.
