Most 1846-D quarter eagles are well struck on both obverse and reverse. As is the case with many Dahlonega gold coins, there are usually marks in the fields. Original, uncleaned specimens have coloration ranging from orange-gold to green-gold to yellow-gold, with luster that is usually bright and frosty. A few semi-prooflike specimens exist. Average eye appeal is the norm. There are three known die varieties. Less than 210 specimens survive with roughly 2% being Mint State.
