Description:
High-End 1834 Quarter Eagle, MS64
Classic Head, No Motto
1834 $2 1/2 Classic MS64 NGC. Breen-6138, Small Head, R.1. The year 1834 saw the first use of the Classic Head, No Motto design on U.S. gold coinage. A large mintage of 112,234 pieces was achieved, making the date one of the most available issues of the series and a popular type coin, as well. The date is known in four different die varieties. The Small Head variety is the one most frequently encountered, characterized by the flattened curls above the headband. The Classic Head design was always popular with collectors and appeared in many early auction catalogs, including the Sixth Semi-Annual Sale (Woodward, 3/1865), lot 2809. The lot was described as "1834 The new type, splendid impression, scarce." The lot sold for $4.00 to William Strobridge.
The present coin is a most attractive specimen, with a particularly sharp strike and prooflike surfaces. Delicate shades of reddish toning adorn the central areas, deepening at the periphery. Census: 53 in 64, 16 finer (4/09).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25FS, PCGS# 7692)
