Mint State 1860 Clark, Gruber, & Co. Quarter Eagle1860 $2 1/2 Clark, Gruber & Co. Quarter Eagle MS61 PCGS. K-1, R.4. The issues of Clark, Gruber, & Co. were highly regarded by Colorado banking circles, and they had little competition from other private miners. Colorado firms owned by John Parsons and J.J. Conway struck gold coins, but their production must have been small, since these are extremely rare today. Usually, the coins of Clark, Gruber & Co. imitated their Federal equivalents, as is the case for the 1860 2 1/2 Dollars. CLARK & CO. replaces LIBERTY on the coronet, and PIKES PEAK GOLD DENVER substitutes for UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; these changes circumvent counterfeiting laws. The present honey-gold piece is typically struck in the centers, but peripheral elements are bold, and handling marks are limited to the left obverse field and the field above the eagle.
