Variety 5-H. The top of the numerator is not attached to the base of the mintmark.

This is among the more available Dahlonega quarter eagles in circulated grades with over 200 pieces known. As with all Dahlonega quarter eagles, truly “new” coins are quite rare and I doubt if more than 15 or so exist in Uncirculated with most in the MS60 to MS62 range.

This coin has a very fresh appearance with frosty luster and lovely greenish-gold color which is contrasted by some orange-gold at the rims. If it were not for a few marks at the central obverse, this coin would clearly grade MS62. Unlike some 1844-D quarter eagles the strike is sharp with no weakness at the centers, making this piece desirable for the issue.

No PCGS MS61 example of the 1844-D quarter eagle has sold at auction since Bass III: 122 realized $12,075 all the way back in May 2000.

CAC has approved two in this grade with just one finer (MS62).
