    Delightful 1834 Classic Quarter Eagle, MS64

    1834 $2 1/2 Classic MS64 NGC. McCloskey-A, Breen-6140, Large Head, R.3. The Large Head quarter eagle of 1834 differs from the Small Head of the year by a large 4 closer to the curl, deep indentation in the curls at 2:30, thick lips, and the AM of AMERICA well apart. The reported mintage of 112,234 pieces includes both varieties, but the Large Head is much scarcer.
    The bright yellow-gold surfaces of this near-Gem display noticeable field-motif contrast. The design elements are well struck, and the fields yield extensive areas of die polish lines. A few minute handling marks prevent this delightful specimen from attaining full Gem classification.(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25FS, PCGS# 7692)
