Description

Old Reverse 1859 Quarter Eagle, MS61

1859 $2 1/2 Old Reverse, Type One MS61 NGC. In 1859, the Philadelphia Mint modified the reverse of the quarter eagle, shrinking the lettering and the arrowheads on that side, but coins with the old reverse were also struck in 1859 and on into 1860 and 1861. This 1859 Old Reverse piece has strong yellow-gold luster and solid overall detail, though the eagle's legs show a degree of softness. Census: 18 in 61, 14 finer (1/10).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25JK, PCGS# 97788)
