    Remarkable Gem 1834 Classic Quarter Eagle

    1834 $2 1/2 Classic MS65 NGC. Breen-6138, Variety-1, Small Head, R.1. A remarkable example of the Classic quarter eagle type, the first (along with the Classic half eagle) type to reflect the reduced tenor standard that remained in effect until the end of Federal gold coin production in 1933. The present Gem has prooflike fields and fully struck borders. The centers show only minor incompleteness of strike, on the curls near Liberty's ear and opposite on the tops of the left-side vertical shield lines. Evaluation beneath a lens cannot locate any remotely relevant contact. Exceptional quality for the type, which is typically encountered in XF and AU grades. Census: 16 in 65, 1 finer (6/10).(Registry values: P1)

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

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 89.92% Gold, 10.08% Copper
