Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1850-D Liberty Head quarter eagle is quite a scarce coin, but examples of this elusive issue have been offered at auction with regularity for the last few years. Most surviving coins are in grades of Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated. Mint State 1850-D quarter eagles are very rare. NGC has graded about a dozen coins as Mint State. Most of these coins are at the MS 61 and MS 62 level and have been graded recently. The Harry W. Bass Jr. example was offered as an AU 58 coin, but Jeff Garrett’s notes for the auction stated that the piece could grade at the MS 62 level. A single example has been graded MS 63 by NGC, but has not been offered at auction.
