Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Most 1841-C Liberty Head quarter eagles seen are decently struck, except for the centers of the obverse. The date is scarce in any grade. There have been far fewer of the date sold at auction than the 1840-C quarter eagles. Just a few are offered for sale each year. An unusual number of coins have been graded About Uncirculated. This is probably explained by resubmissions, as the number of coins seen would not support such a high number. The finest the authors have seen was the John Jay Pittman coin, which was sold raw but subsequently, graded NGC MS 62. The coin was purchased by Pittman in 1956 for $52.50 and sold in 1998 for $41,250.
