Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: With a mintage of 36,209 pieces of the 1843-D Liberty Head quarter eagle is the most generously produced quarter eagle from the Dahlonega Mint. All specimens of it are found with a small date. The reverse, however, is seen with a small mintmark (the more common issue) and a large mintmark. The mintage for the year saw extensive circulation, and well-worn coins are the ones most commonly seen. The date can be found with relative ease in grades through About Uncirculated. Many consider the date the most likely candidate for a type coin from the Dahlonega Mint. Mint State 1843-D quarter eagles are quite scarce however, with only 20 or so coins at that level. The MS 60 Smithsonian example is one of the finest we have seen.
