1840-C $2.5 NGC AU53

The 1840-C Liberty Head quarter eagle is popular as the first Liberty Head gold coin from the Charlotte Mint. The 1840-C is scarce, but generally available in the Extremely Fine and About Uncirculated ranges. Most examples seen are well struck, and are among the sharpest from that mint. The mintmark is very small, and is the same one used on the 1841-C, 1842-C, and the 1843-C Small Date. Probably about a dozen Mint State coins are known, with the finest the author has seen being the superb Harry W. Bass Jr. coin. The coin was sold as a PCGS MS-63, and one of the authors of this book, Jeff Garrett, noted in his catalog that the coin could possibly grade MS-64. Resubmissions would explain the unlikely population number of eight coins graded MS-63 by NGC and PCGS.
