Description:
Richly Toned 1861 Clark, Gruber
Two and a Half
, AU53, K-5a
1861 $2 1/2 Clark, Gruber & Co. Quarter Eagle AU53 PCGS. K-5a, R.4. The motto "Pike's Peak or Bust!" was the motto for the Fifty-Niners, as they came to be called in imitation of the Forty-Niners of California. The year 1859 was the peak year for the Fifty-Niners, and it is estimated that 100,000 of them came to the area seeking their fortunes--the first major influx of European-Americans into the area. The present 1861 quarter eagle has a rich look, with canary-gold fields complementing orange-gold high points. This still-lustrous piece is nearly devoid of abrasions, save for a small dig on the inside of the O in CO. on the reverse. Listed on page 378 of the 2010 Guide Book. Population: 5 in 53, 33 finer (5/10). (PCGS# 10139)
