The 1847-D is one of the most common quarter eagles struck at the Dahlonega Mint. The strike and luster on this date is of average quality. The surfaces often have circulation marks and some examples have mint made problems such as die scratches and clashmarks. The coloration on orginal, uncleaned specimens ranges from orange-gold to coppery-gold and has above average eye appeal. Less than 190 specimens survive with roughly 8% known in Mint State.
