Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1847-D Liberty Head quarter eagle has a mintage that includes slightly fewer coins than the preceding years from the Dahlonega Mint. The date seems more common, however, and it is probably the date most likely to be included in a type set requiring an example from this popular Southern mint. Most examples are well struck for the issue, and the date shows evidence of repunching at the base of the numerals. Although About Uncirculated coins of the date and mint can be found with moderate effort, Mint State coins are quite scarce. Two coins have reached the coveted gem MS 65 level. One example is from the fabulous Duke’s Creek Collection. The Dukes Creek example last sold at auction for $74,750 in 2006.
