Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1844-D Liberty Head quarter eagle is one of the more readily available dates from the Dahlonega Mint. Circulated examples can be acquired with moderate diligence. The date is most often seen poorly struck in the central portions of the obverse. This can make the issue more difficult to grade. Some pieces are found surprisingly well struck, and should command a premium when offered. About two dozen coins have been graded at the Mint State level by NGC. This information is probably a bit misleading, as the higher numbers on the population reports are the result of the resubmissions. The finest example known for the date is probably the fantastic Duke’s Creek coin, which was graded a few years ago at the MS 63 level. The coin from the famous Pittman collection also graded NGC MS 63 and sold at auction in April 2014 for $17,000.
