    Small Head, Breen-6138, Variety 1

    1834 $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. Small Head, Breen-6138, Variety 1, R.1. Liberty's curls are flat, identifying the popular Variety 1. From a mintage of 112,234 pieces, the 1834 Classic Head quarter eagle is an available issue in lower grades, but it becomes somewhat scarce at the MS62 grade level. This attractive MS62 example exhibits well-detailed design elements, with just a touch of softness on the curls below the headband. The pleasing lemon-yellow surfaces show the expected number of minor contact marks for the grade, with traces of prooflike reflectivity in sheltered areas.
