If you pay attention to these things, you'll note that the availability of nice, original Dahlonega gold coins of any date or denomination has really dried up in the last year or two. I have a very hard time finding any coins that I like enough to offer to collectors. But it was never easy finding coins like this 1847-D quarter eagle. I have noted in the past that this issue comes with good color more than any other quarter eagle from this mint and this specific example is choice and original with pleasing medium green-gold color. The surfaces are choice and show even wear with plenty of dirt in the recesses attesting to its originality. If you have been looking for a nice, affordable Dahlonega quarter eagle, this piece would be hard to better at less than $3,000.
