Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: With a mintage of 36,209 pieces of the 1843-D Liberty Head quarter eagle is the most generously produced quarter eagle from the Dahlonega Mint. All specimens of it are found with a small date. The reverse, however, is seen with a small mintmark (the more common issue) and a large mintmark. The mintage for the year saw extensive circulation, and well-worn coins are the ones most commonly seen. The date can be found with relative ease in grades through About Uncirculated. Many consider the date the most likely candidate for a type coin from the Dahlonega Mint. Mint State 1843-D quarter eagles are quite scarce however, with only 20 or so coins at that level. The MS 60 Smithsonian example is one of the finest we have seen.

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.
