1858-C $2 1/2 MS63 NGC....
Reflective 1858-C Quarter Eagle, MS631858-C $2 1/2 MS63 NGC. Variety 1, the only known die pair. An extremely large mintmark for the denomination slightly displaces the 1 in the fraction. It is probably from a punch intended for half eagles. With a mintage of only 9,000 coins, it is hardly surprising that only one die pair was necessary. This piece has an excellent strike that only shows slight weakness on the eagle's left (facing) leg. The fields are reflective, and both sides exhibit brilliant yellow luster with few blemishes. NGC has certified two examples at this grade level, with none finer, while PCGS has certified three, also with none finer (1/09).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25JH, PCGS# 7787)
