Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1854-C Liberty Head quarter eagle is a scarce and popular coin in all grades. Most of the coins offered are well circulated, and Mint State examples are very rare. Coins of this date are frequently found to have been harshly cleaned or damaged. A pleasing 1854-C quarter eagle is quite the prize. Most surviving specimens are softly struck in the center, especially on the eagle’s left wing and about the shield. On the reverse a small die break runs from the fraction bar into the rim. The Smithsonian specimen is a pleasing Uncirculated coin and among the finest known. The finest example that the authors have seen was a coin sold by Mid-American Rare Coin Auctions in 1985. It was from the famous Jasper Robin Collection and was later graded by NGC as MS 62.
