    Rare 1865 Quarter Eagle

    1865 $2 1/2 Quarter Eagle XF 45 Accugrade. Simply put, this is a rare coin. Only 1,500 business strike quarter eagles were produced in 1865, most of which were probably melted during the late 1860s. Although somewhat dull from an old cleaning, both sides of this coin retain ample striking definition. There are a few small abrasions, none of which are inconsistent with the grade. (NGC ID# 25K5, PCGS# 7801)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
