Description

Splendid Premium Gem 1857 Quarter Eagle

1857 $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. Here is a splendid coin with a wonderful satiny sheen across both sides. A minute nick is found on Liberty's cheek, after close inspection with a strong magnifier, along with a few superficial grazes in the fields, but these are barely worth mentioning. The strike is sharp on all but the second of the obverse stars, and a trifle weak on the eagle's leg feathers and right (facing) talons. The dentils along the left side of the reverse are also quite soft. Despite these trivial deficiencies, this is certainly one of the finest survivors from this date. Population: 1 in 66, 2 finer (6/09).
From The Victoria Collection.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25JC, PCGS# 7782)
