Description

Celebrated 1808 Quarter Eagle, MS62

1808 $2 1/2 MS62 PCGS. CAC. Breen-6125, Bass-3017, BD-1, R.4. The 1808 quarter eagle introduced the new Johann Reich designed Capped Bust obverse, combined with a modified eagle reverse design. It was only struck in 1808, prior to a 12 year gap in the denomination until more quarter eagles were minted in 1821. The surfaces are lightly abraded as always, with faint adjustment marks visible through ES OF on the reverse. The central obverse and reverse design detail is bold, and the overall eye appeal is excellent. Both sides are fully lustrous, with slightly reflective fields and rich orange-gold color. Hints of rose patina complete the picture. Census: 1 in 62, 6 finer (3/09).(Registry values: P8) (NGC ID# BFVZ, PCGS# 7660)

It goes without saying that after the auction when we had a chance to have dinner together and get to know each other it even made it a better experience for me. I look forward to getting more involved with Heritage in the Future.
