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)

Learn about consigning with us

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
