    Exuberant 1834 Classic Head Quarter Eagle, Breen-6138, MS64 Prooflike

    1834 $2 1/2 Classic MS64 ★ Prooflike NGC. CAC. Breen-6138, Small Head, R.1. The somewhat flatter first three curls atop the head diagnose the Breen-6138 Small Head obverse. This is a common coin in an uncommon grade, however, although a few examples exist in grades up to MS66 at NGC. In MS64 Prooflike this piece is one of five pieces so graded, with an MS65 Prooflike and an MS66 Prooflike finer (7/08). The fields are fully prooflike on both sides, clearly a function of an early strike from fresh dies on both sides. Exuberant luster races over the yellow-gold surfaces, which reveal no distractions without a loupe, and precious few with. A nice type coin.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25FS, PCGS# 77692)

    Weight: 4.18 grams
