The 1844 C is among the scarcer Charlotte Quarter Eagles. It is most often seen well worn with some survivors grading as low Very Good to Fine. It is scarce in properly graded Extremely Fine and rare in About Uncirculated. There are an estimated four to six known in Uncirculated. By 1844, public confidence in gold coins minted privately by the Bechtler family had waned. Charlotte Mint coins had finally become the most readily accepted medium of change in both Carolina and the surrounding areas. A fire at the mint on July 27, 1844 halted production until it reopened in October of 1846. These two factors meant that quarter eagles and half eagles struck in 1844 saw especially heavy circulation and are, today, much rarer than their mintage figures suggest.
