Very few quarter eagles were made at the Dahlonega Mint in 1854, and most of these were poorly produced. This date is always weakly struck in at least some portions of the obverse and reverse. The denticles are weak or missing on most examples. There is an area of raised die lines to the left of the date on all coins the authors have seen. The 1854-D Liberty Head quarter eagle is often seen well worn or damaged in some way. Because of the extremely low mintage, the date is one of the most popular for the series. The finest known example is again a part of the great Duke’s Creek Collection. The coin first appeared in 1996 at auction and was very conservatively graded by PCGS as MS-62. The coin was recently regraded at the MS-64 level by NGC. The Smithsonian coin is one of the finest seen, at the AU-58 level.
