Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: With the highest mintage of any Charlotte Mint quarter eagle, it is not surprising that the date is also one of the most available in the series. When assembling a type set of Southern branch-mint gold coins, the 1847-C Liberty Head quarter eagle will probably represent the Charlotte quarter eagle. Although the issue is generally available, most of the coins seen are represented by well-worn examples. The date is usually well struck, with the exception of the eagle’s right leg. Harry W. Bass Jr. must have had a special interest in this issue, as he possessed five examples. The Smithsonian has four 1847-C quarter eagles. The finest graded by NGC has been MS 64, one of which sold at auction in January 2012 for $17,365.
