1843-D $2.50 NGC AU53 CAC

Given the fact that this is the most common quarter eagle from this mint and it is among the best produced, the 1843-D is a perfect type coin for the collector who is becoming interested in Dahlonega gold. This deep green-gold example is original and choice with a good deal of dirt in the recesses of the obverse and reverse. It is sharply detailed and has good overall eye appeal for the date and grade. I'm often asked if it is still possible to purchase nifty branch mint gold for $2,000-3,000 and I offer a coin like this as proof that such pieces still exist.
