Those 230 ounces of gold were employed to produce 1,389 quarter eagles, but only 75 or fewer examples are believed to exist today. This is an attractive coin, despite the surfaces that are just a tad too bright to be original. The reddish patina that is forming over each side of the old cleaning helps the appeal, and slight remnants of the original luster cling to the protected areas around the devices. A small, short scratch below star 12 will aid in future identification. A coveted and popular coin from the historic Gold Rush era.
From The R.M. Phillips Limited Partnership Collection.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25HA, PCGS# 7749)
