Description:
Superb Gem 1926 Sesquicentennial Quarter Eagle
1926 $2 1/2 Sesquicentennial MS67 NGC. Congress authorized the 1926 Sesquicentennial commemorative issue to raise funds for a celebratory fair in Philadelphia. The full name of this issue, sometimes simply called the Sesqui, is the Sesquicentennial of American Independence quarter eagle. Both half dollars and quarter eagles were issued, each designed by John R. Sinnock, Chief Engraver of the United States Mint at the time. While the half dollar has conjoined busts of George Washington and Calvin Coolidge, the quarter eagle has a different design. A female with flowing gown stands on top of the world, holding a scroll in one hand and a torch in the other. The scroll is intended to represent the Declaration of Independence while the torch represents freedom. The reverse depicts a front view of Independence Hall in Philadelphia.
This amazing Superb Gem example is tied with two other submissions for the finest of the issue ever certified by NGC. There has never been a similarly graded specimen by PCGS in 20 years of numismatic certification. The 1926 Sesquicentennial quarter eagle was the final commemorative gold issue prior to the modern era of gold commemoratives that began in 1984. Every individual detail is boldly defined on each side. The surfaces have frosty yellow-gold luster with hints of pinkish color. Only with careful examination under magnification can any individual surface marks be discerned. This is a remarkable example with outstanding aesthetic appeal. Census: 3 in 67, 0 finer (6/06).
