1847-D $2.50 NGC AU55

If I were looking for an affordable Dahlonega quarter eagle for type purposes, I'd want to own a coin like this 1847-D. It has pleasing natural green-gold color and tons of dirt encrusted in the protected areas that proclaim its originality. As is typical for this issue, the strike is very good with nearly full detail seen at the centers and the borders. The 1847-D is among the more available quarter eagles from this mint but it is scarcer than the 1843-D, 1844-D and 1845-D, making it very sensible for a type set.
