Description

1862 Quarter Eagle, MS62
Important Civil War Issue

1862 $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. The advent of the Civil War, and the uncertain outcome of that conflict, ensured that silver and gold coins would either be melted or hoarded. As a result, attrition took a high toll on these pieces, and many great rarities were created during the war years. The mintage of the 1862 quarter eagle was 98,508 business strikes, but only 14 other coins have been graded by NGC, with six finer (12/11). This sharply struck example has pronounced die striations in the field that give the coin a prooflike glimmer on each side. The surfaces are lightly abraded (for an MS62), and the color is an even reddish-gold.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25JZ, PCGS# 7796)
