Description

PCGS 1856-S MS 63. A scarce S-mint quarter eagle that is very rare in strict mint condition. This is the finest example believed to exist. It is the highest grade that has been given to any of the 3 mint state pieces certified to date (2/93): there is 1 MS 61 by PCGS and 1 MS 62 by NGC. The strike on this piece is considerably above average for the issue with no weakness in the center of the obverse and only slight softness on the reverse feathers around the shield. Fully lustrous throughout with a few scattered, minor abrasions in the fields, this is an exceptional grade for this difficult early Coronet quarter eagle. Trends $25,000 (2/15). (NGC ID# 25KL, PCGS# 7781)
