Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1849-D Liberty Head quarter eagle is much rarer than the Dahlonega quarter eagle issues of 1846 through 1848. The date is usually seen in grades of Very Fine to Extremely Fine. Many surviving examples have been harshly cleaned or damaged in some way. On most of the coins seen, the reverse denticles are weak on one side. The date is extremely rare in full Mint State. Fewer than a dozen examples have been graded at that level, most in the last few years. The finest pieces graded for the issue have been a few at the MS 62 level, one of which is the Duke’s Creek specimen. This coin last sold in August 2014 for $18,800.
