1855-C $2.5 NGC AU55

The 1855-C Liberty Head quarter eagle has the lowest mintage of any issue from the Charlotte Mint. The mintage of the 1843-C Small Date may be lower, but that can only be estimated. The quality of striking for the year was atrocious. Most specimens are weakly struck and on flawed planchets. Scattered die chips are a hallmark for the issue. Every coin examined has a small rim cud on the reverse below the denomination. Any 1855-C quarter eagle is very rare, and the date only appears at auction a few times each year. Most examples seen are in the Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated range. Mint State coins are extremely rare. The finest coin ever offered was the phenomenal Harry W. Bass Jr. example, which grades MS-64 is hands-down the best known.
