    1835 Quarter Eagle, MS63
    Scarce Issue, Rare Any Finer

    1835 $2 1/2 MS63 PCGS Secure. CAC. Breen-6141, Variety 6, R.2. Ex: "Col." Green, Newman. Wide AM variety. The 1835 quarter eagle is surprisingly scarce in Mint State for an issue with a mintage of more than 130,000 pieces. Characteristic softness on Liberty's hair curls near the ear and some minor blending at the left (facing) shield corner and wing are typical for the issue. The fields are partially prooflike and appealing. Reddish-gold highlights are especially prominent and attractive on the reverse, while the obverse displays rose-red shades over the lustrous green-gold patination.
