The strike on the 1851-D quarter eagle is above average on both obverse and reverse. The surfaces usually come with marks from circulation and many have Mint-made flaws. There are currently five Mint State coins known out of less than 120 specimens that are surviving. On these orginal, uncleaned coins the luster is frosty with a satiny texture, while the coloration ranges from yellow-gold to rose-gold to green-gold making eye appeal above average.
