The 1841-D quarter eagle is a scarce coin in all grades. It is not as rare as the 1840-D or the 1842-D. The date usually has an average strike and surfaces that are below average because of circulation marks, die cracks, hairlines, and rim nicks. Original, uncleaned specimens have coloration ranging from green-gold to coppery orange-gold to yellow-gold. High grade examples have frosty luster. A few coins of this date are semi-prooflike and are rare. There are two known die varieties. Less than 70 specimens exist with only 3 coins known in Mint State.
