Description

Lovely 1848 CAL Quarter Eagle, VG10

1848 $2 1/2 CAL. VG10 PCGS. CAC. Housed in a green-label PCGS holder is an affordable example of the famous 1848 CAL quarter eagle. This example spent considerable time in circulation, or as someone's pocket piece, and shows considerable wear. That is fortunate for the collector who has always wanted an example of this legendary gold coin but lacks the budget necessary for a high-grade example like the MS64 NGC coin also offered in the 2011 FUN auction. Both sides have smooth surfaces with only a few trivial handling marks that are expected for the grade. Dark russet patina outlines the devices on this lovely orange-gold specimen. The all-important CAL over the eagle also hosts dark patina and stands boldly against the surrounding field.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25HA, PCGS# 7749)
