Variety 1-A.

The 1839-D quarter eagle is doubly desirable as a first-year-of-issue and a one-year type. It has become arguably the most popular quarter eagle from this mint and it is a hard date to find in collector grades. A few hundred are known from the mintage of 13,674 and the vast majority are either cleaned or they lack any degree of eye appeal.

This is a solid EF40 to EF45 piece that has been net graded by PCGS due to a few small obverse marks in the left field. The color is a pleasing medium orange-gold and there is a good amount of luster remaining on both sides. As always, the reverse shows some weakness of strike on the wingtips. The appearance is extremely pleasing for the grade.

The last PCGS VF35 1839-D quarter eagle to sell at auction was Heritage 2007 ANA: 2834, housed in an old label holder, which brought $4,888. In my opinion, the present example is comparable in quality and sharpness.

The price level for this date has appreciated considerably in the last few years and this is quite possibly the finest available quality 1839-D quarter eagle for less than $5,000.

 CAC has approved just this one coin in VF and eight finer.
