1850-D $2.50 NGC AU53 CAC

Beginning with this issue, the quarter eagles from the Dahlonega mint become rarer than the previous five years and much less well made. This original example has nice green-gold color with plenty of dirt in the recessed areas of the obverse and reverse. In higher grades, the 1850-D is almost never available and this pleasing piece is just about the best quality available to collectors.
