1847-C $2.50 PCGS MS64

The 1847-C is easily the most obtainable Charlotte quarter eagle and there are as many as three to four dozen known in Uncirculated. However, there are no Gems and probably no more than five or six MS64's of which this piece, which has been off the market for a number of years, is probably the second best that I have seen. The quality of strike is amazing with detail that would typically be equated with the Philadelphia mint and the luster is pillowy and full. The color is totally "right" for the issue with intense yellow-gold shades turning slightly to orange at the left obverse border.
