Description:
Remarkably Attractive 1861 Clark, Gruber
Quarter Eagle, K-5a, Choice AU
1861 $2 1/2 Clark, Gruber & Co. Quarter Eagle AU55 PCGS. K-5a, R.4. The famous Pike's Peak Gold Rush and the state's mineral riches echo today in many place names in present-day Colorado, such as Golden, Aurora, Leadville, Silverton, and many others. The firm of Clark, Gruber made quarter eagles only in 1860 and 1861, but the 1861s are notably more elusive in the higher circulated grades and lower Mint State grades. This Choice AU example shows minor recutting on star 6, as do many examples, and we believe that the varieties listed as K-5 and K-5a are the same variety in a different die state. This is a lovely Choice AU piece with deep reddish-gold coloration, complementing tinges of violet and hazel on the reverse. This piece has an excellent strike through the centers, unlike most examples, and is remarkably attractive overall. Listed on page 378 of the 2010 Guide Book. Population: 16 in 55, 17 finer (5/10). (PCGS# 10139)
