Though the vast majority of known Sesquicentennial quarter eagle survivors fall short of the design's remarkable promise, the present piece is a stunning exemplar. Its devices offer undeniably exquisite detail, virtually unheard-of for this often-weak issue, and hints of sparkling frost on the uppermost design elements. The surfaces are delightfully lustrous and primarily yellow-gold with occasional hints of peach and straw close to the margins. The preservation is magnificent, and the coin appears virtually flawless, even under close inspection. The discerning gold commemorative enthusiast would do well to consider this amazing Superb Gem. NGC has graded just three MS67 examples of this issue and PCGS none, with no finer pieces in the combined certified population (6/08).
