||QUARTER EAGLES - CORONET
||NGC AU 53
One of numerous unsung rarities from the early Liberty Quarter Eagle series, the 1842 (just 2,823 coins struck) is highly elusive in both circulated and Mint State grades. This minimally worn, khaki-gold survivor retains some vibrancy to the surfaces in the form of remnants of a satin-to-slightly granular finish. Boldly defined from a well-executed strike, with mostly small, wispy abrasions from time spent in circulation. From the Horseshoe Collection.
