1847-C $2.50 NGC AU58 CAC

For some reason Charlotte coins with really exceptional color are not seen as often as their Dahlonega counterparts. This 1847-C quarter eagle, while certainly not a rare coin by the standards of this mint, has exceptional color which gives it true character. The obverse and reverse are a deep green-gold with splashes of orange in the fields. As is the case with most examples of this date, the strike is excellent and this piece shows a considerable amount of frosty luster under the aformentioned coloration. This is one of the nicest toned Charlotte quarter eagles of any date that I have seen and it would make a great addition to a set that featured branch mint gold with color.

CAC has approved two in this grade and two finer.
