    1834 Two and a Half, MS63
    Scarce Variety 3

    1834 $2 1/2 MS63 PCGS. Large Head, Breen-6140, Variety 3, R.4. Variety 3 is undoubtedly scarcest among the four 1834 Classic quarter eagle marriages. The pick-up point is the T in UNITED, entered lower than surrounding letters. We know of only four other AU or finer examples of the variety that have appeared in a Heritage auction within the past five years. The present lot is graded higher than any of those four pieces, and is likely among the finest Variety 3 examples. It is a prooflike sun-gold piece with attractive surfaces and moderate incompleteness of strike at the centers.(Registry values: P1)

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