1840-C $2.50 Liberty. NGC graded MS-61. A hint of light toning. Some luster still evident. Not only is the 1840-C a rarity in Mint State, but the issue is generally scarce in any grade. What we are pleased to report to readers, and what the clear photographs courtesy of our professional coin photographer, is that the condition is outstanding! Indeed, this may be one of the freshest MS61 quarter eagles available. The surface is clean with a yellow-golden to greenish tint, centers bold including the eagle and shield, with only the stars sometimes rounded on their tops. Further in importance, the 1840-C is the first year of the Liberty Head series, and thus for the type collector or the Charlotte specialist the 1840 has a special reputation. Only 12,822 struck. Pop 5; 1 in 62; 3 in 63. (PCGS # 7718) .
Estimated Value $10,000 - 12,000.

Realized $12,363
