Description & Analysis

Simply put, this is a rare issue. When offered at all, the 1844 (6,784 pieces produced) is apt to grade no finer than XF. Writing in 1975, David Akers stated that he had never seen a Mint State 1844 Quarter Eagle. He did, however, note that the Bell and Roach sales of 1944 both included an Uncirculated example. The advent of third party grading has brought countless numismatic rarities out of hiding where they could be included in today's population reports.
