The 1847-D Liberty Head quarter eagle has a mintage that includes slightly fewer coins than the preceding years from the Dahlonega Mint. The date seems more common, however, and it is probably the date most likely to be included in a type set requiring an example from this popular Southern mint. Most examples are well struck for the issue, and the date shows evidence of repunching at the base of the numerals. Although About Uncirculated coins of the date and mint can be found with moderate effort, Mint State coins are quite scarce. Two coins have reached the coveted gem MS-65 level. One example is from the fabulous Duke’s Creek Collection. The other is probably the Harry W. Bass Jr. coin that was sold in 1999 as PCGS MS-64 and then later appeared in 2004 at auction graded as NGC MS-65.
