Proof 1861 Clark, Gruber Two and a Half Copper Dies Trial1861 $2 1/2 Clark, Gruber & Co. Quarter Eagle Copper Dies Trial PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. K-9, High R.7. Lovely orange, ruby-red, and gunmetal-blue toning enrich this pleasing near-Gem. The fields are moderately mirrored and are void of remotely mentionable marks. The strike is exquisite, unlike the issued gold two and a half dollar pieces, which are typically soft in the centers. Each side has a partial knife rim, from 9 to 2 o'clock on the obverse and from 12 to 6 o'clock on the reverse. K-9 is from the same dies as the regular issue gold pieces, K-5a. As of (10/06), PCGS has certified two dies trial pieces as proof and an additional seven dies trial pieces as Mint State. The present example is the finest certified among the two proof pieces, and is housed in a green label holder.
From The Jones Beach Collection. (PCGS# 10159)
