1839-D $2.50 Classic Head. NGC graded AU-53. Mostly untoned. A choice example of this elusive yet popular Dahlonega quarter eagle. The mintmark is above the date, on the obverse. The surfaces exhibit attractive light greenish-gold color with some russet orange around the peripheral areas; and are free from all but the most trivial abrasions. Better struck in the centers than usual and free from a pronounced die break above the eagle's head seen on a certain portion of the issue. One of the keys to the Classic quarter eagle series designed by mint engraver William Kneass. Only 13,674 struck. Pop 16; 49 finer. (PCGS # 7700) .
Estimated Value $7,500 - 8,500.

Realized $8,970
