With a moderate mintage for both the Dahlonega Mint and the era; the 1845-D Liberty Head quarter eagle is offered for sale on a suprisingly regular basis. An average of five or six coins has been sold at auction each year for the last decade. Most of these have been in grades from Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated. The 1845-D quarter eagle is usually seen with a decent strike for this mint. Some are found with rather obvious die clashing; mostly visible on the reverse near the eagle‚Äôs neck. The 1845-D quarter eagle is a true rarity in Mint State. It is much rarer than the 1844-D; and until a few years ago; just a couple were thought to be known in Mint State. The finest survivor is the coin that passed from the Harry W. Bass; Jr. collection into the Duke‚Äôs Creek collection of Dahlonega gold at a cost of $26;450.
