Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: Very few quarter eagles were made at the Dahlonega Mint in 1854, and most of these were poorly produced. This date is always weakly struck in at least some portions of the obverse and reverse. The denticles are weak or missing on most examples. There is an area of raised die lines to the left of the date on all coins we have seen. The 1854-D Liberty Head quarter eagle is often seen well-worn or damaged in some way. Because of the extremely low mintage, the date is one of the most popular for the series. The finest known example is again a part of the great Duke’s Creek Collection. The coin first appeared in 1996 at auction was graded at the MS 64 level by NGC. The coin sold in 2006 for the princely sum of $80,500.
