Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: With a moderate mintage for the Dahlonega Mint and era, the 1845-D Liberty Head quarter eagle is offered for sale on a fairly regular basis. Most of these have been in grades from Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated. The 1845-D quarter eagle is usually seen with a decent strike for this mint. Some are found with rather obvious die clashing, mostly visible on the reverse near the eagle’s neck. The 1845-D quarter eagle is a true rarity in Mint State. It is much rarer than the 1844-D. The finest survivor is the coin that passed from the Harry W. Bass Jr. Collection into the Duke’s Creek Collection of Dahlonega gold.
