1834 $2 1/2 Classic MS66 NGC. CAC. Small Head, Breen-6138, Variety-1, R.1....
The Finest Certified Example
The NGC Census Report lists just two Premium Gem 1834 quarter eagles, one certified MS66 Prooflike and the other (this coin) certified MS66 . PCGS also lists a single MS66 (6/11). Stack's offered the MS66 Prooflike coin in January 2010, lot 3453, and Bowers and Merena offered the MS66 coin as part of the Rod Sweet Collection in April 2005, lot 3366. The present piece fails to match the plate of the Bowers and Merena sale and appears to be a different coin. We are unaware of any other auction appearances in MS66.
This amazing specimen has lovely lemon-yellow surfaces with prooflike fields, light cameo contrast, and bold central design motifs. Scattered marks on each side are trivial. The obverse has a small rim pinch at 12 o'clock. This exceptional example is certainly headed for a high-grade gold type set or specialized collection.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25FS, PCGS# 7692)
