Description:

Near-Gem 1856-S Quarter Eagle
Seldom Seen Finer
1856-S $2 1/2 MS64 PCGS. A tough coin to find in this extremely pleasing near-Gem grade, this 1856-S quarter eagle is certainly one of the top few existing. The strike is full on the obverse stars and curls of Liberty, and similarly sharp on the eagle's shield and claws. The surfaces display satiny luster and attractive orange-gold color. Few Mint State coins retain the lovely surfaces and quality seen here, as most have far more handling marks and are cast into lower grades by time and attrition. Close examination finds little to fault, just a couple of trivial ticks and scuffs that keep this one from an even higher grade. A small planchet flake on the middle right of the A in STATES provides a pedigree marker. A delight for the series specialist and a coin that any collector would be proud to own. Population: 4 in 64, 3 finer (4/12).
