Description:
1836 Two and a Half, MS63
Script 8, Head of 1835
1836 $2 1/2 Script 8 MS63 NGC. Breen-6143, Variety 11, R.2. A lustrous olive-gold example with minimal marks and moderate inexactness of strike at the centers. Breen (1988) describes various portrait styles on 1836 quarter eagles, including the Heads of 1834, 1835, and 1837. The differences are minor and reminiscent of Christian Gobrecht's tinkering with the designs on 1839 cents. Variety 11 has a Head of 1835 but is more interesting for its lengthy obverse die cracks. Census: 57 in 63, 21 finer (4/13).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 25FU, PCGS# 7694)
