Lustrous Mint State 1861 Clark, Gruber
Quarter Eagle, K-5a, Only Five Finer at PCGS

1861 $2 1/2 Clark, Gruber & Co. Quarter Eagle MS61 PCGS. K-5a, R.4. The full extent of the Colorado Gold Rush became known only in 1858, and two brothers named Clark, Austin and Milton, made good profits selling goods to prospectors from their store in Leavenworth, Kansas. In March 1859, the Clark brothers began a partnership with Emanuel Gruber, redeeming gold dust for certificates of deposit.
This MS61 1861 Clark, Gruber quarter eagle is one of only six examples so certified at PCGS, and there are five finer (5/10). Minor recutting is once again visible on star 7, although here it is a bit more prominent than on some of the other examples in this same sale. The strike through the center of this piece is sharper than normally seen Generous luster radiates from both sides of this lemon-gold piece. Listed on page 378 of the 2010 Guide Book. (PCGS# 10139)
