Highly Collectible 1798 Close Date Quarter Eagle1798 $2 1/2 Close Date AU53 PCGS. Four Berries, Breen-6116, Bass-3005, R.5. Now considered the scarcer of two varieties for this very difficult date, as few of the 1798 quarter eagles surfacing have been this die pairing. A total of 1,094 pieces were recorded to have been struck, although a delivery of 480 coins was made in December of 1799 and has been speculated by experts to have included the 1798 Five Berries pieces, as there are no coins of this denomination dated 1799 or 1800. The surfaces here exhibit good sharpness and are bright and pebbly with rich reddish-gold color. We notice a group pf adjustment marks (as made) on the obverse across Liberty's cap and hair. An important, rarely offered early gold issue.
From The Dr. Douglas Roane Collection. (PCGS# 97649)
