1852-C Quarter Eagle $2.50 NGC AU55
PCGS Coin Number: 7764
The mintage for this year suggests that the 1852-C quarter eagle is a scarce issue. That is surely the case; as just a few examples are offered for sale each year. Most of the known survivors are in the Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated range. Mint State coins are very rare and when available are usually on the low end of the scale. The finest example known at this point appears to be the Harry W. Bass; Jr. PCGS MS-63; which sold in 1999 for $26;450. Bass had a keen eye for quality; and when offered the opportunity he would purchase a coin to upgrade a date that he already possessed. This date is found with the usual maladies common to Charlotte Mint gold coinage: weak strike; clashed dies; and rough planchets.
Due to market volatility, prices and availiability on coins are subject to change.
