    Here's my last one for awhile, I'll place the informational blurb from the seller below! :D Happy Thanksgiving y'all! :cigar:

    1849 $2 1/2 Liberty Head Gold Quarter Eagle

    NGC graded AU53

    In David Akers' "United States Gold Coins - An Analysis of Auction Records - Volume II - Quarter Eagles 1796-1929" he states, "Like the 1847, this date is definitely underrated and undervalued. Choice specimans are very rare..." He also estimates the average grade is EF-40.

    The "Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins 1795-1933" by Garrett and Guth makes a similar observation, "Even with the larger quantities of gold that came to the Philadelphia Mint by 1849, the mintage for this year was a modest 23,294 quarter eagles. This date is similar to that of the 1847 quarter eagle in that most representatives are found in low grade, with Mint State coins being quite rare."

    The hole in the shield is normal for the 1849 quarter eagle and is possibly due to incomplete lathe work on the die.

    The PCGS CoinFacts page estimates the overall survival at 115 in "All Grades" even though the NGC/PCGS graded population is nearly twice that number.

    NGC/PCGS graded population 234

    Mintage 23,294
