Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1848-D Liberty Head quarter eagle is one of the more available coins of the denomination from the Dahlonega Mint. Examples of the issue can be found in grades of Extremely Fine and About Uncirculated with a bit of patience. A half-dozen or so coins are offered at auction each year. The 1848-D quarter eagle is usually found well struck, much sharper than many of the later issues from the mint. Die clashing is found quite often, primarily in the central portions of the obverse and reverse. Mint State examples of the date are rare, with MS 63 coins being the finest examples graded by NGC. The last NGC MS 63 1848-D quarter eagle to appear at auction sold for $24,725 in June 2002.

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.
