    Description

    Prooflike Gem 1834 Small Head Quarter Eagle

    1834 $2 1/2 MS65 PCGS. Breen-6138, Small Head, R.2. The Small and Large Heads are quite similar, but the curl above the L in LIBERTY is considerably less rounded on the Small Head subtype. Original bright lemon-gold color illuminates this rather prooflike Gem. The nicely preserved fields do not reveal any relevant handling marks, and the strike is crisp aside from a hint of softness on the initial vertical shield lines and the hair curls near Liberty's ear. A beautiful piece that would make an outstanding addition to the finest quality gold type set. Stored in a prior generation PCGS holder. Population: 7 in 65, 1 finer (3/04).
    From The Greenwich Collection, Part One.(#7692) (NGC ID# 25FS, PCGS# 7692)
