Description:
Eye-Appealing 1861 Clark, Gruber
Quarter Eagle, K-5a, XF40
1861 $2 1/2 Clark, Gruber & Co. Quarter Eagle XF40 PCGS. K-5a, R.4.
The Colorado Gold Rush, also known as the Pike's Peak Gold Rush, followed a similar pattern to the California Gold Rush, occurring less than a decade later. The discovery of gold in Colorado happened in 1849, but word spread only in 1857-58, and by 1858 a boom had started in the region around Pike's Peak. This 1861 quarter eagle has the initial eye appeal of a much higher grade, with clean-looking yellow-gold surfaces and no visible distractions. A loupe reveals the typical weak strike through the centers, along with a couple of minor scrapes. Minor recutting shows on star 7. Listed on page 378 of the 2010 Guide Book. Population: 5 in 40, 54 finer (5/10). (PCGS# 10139)
