    PCGS 1834 Classic MS 65. Small Head. There are two distinctly different die varieties of the 1834 quarter eagle, the Large Head and Small Head varieties. By die variety, the Large Head is considered the scarcer of the two, but the superb condition of preservation of this, so called, more common variety puts it in a class by itself. This specimen is amazingly well struck with a distinct crispness to all of the stars, hair curls, and the eagle's neck. The surfaces are a pleasant compromise of prooflike and satiny luster, combined. There is a tiny abrasion just below the N of UNITED and a miniscule carbon fleck above the eagle's right wing. These are mentioned for pedigree purposes, only as they do not detract from the coin's appearance. It is, indeed, a treat to offer for sale a sparkling little gem such as this quarter eagle. Population: 4 in 65, 1 higher, (6/94).
