    Uncirculated 1836 Script 8 Classic Quarter Eagle

    1836 $2 1/2 Script 8 MS61 NGC. McCloskey-D, Head of 1835, Breen-6143, R.2. This flashy lemon-gold example has an above average strike and moderately reflective fields. An interesting lamination (as produced) above the eagle's head does not affect the technical grade. The left obverse field has a pair of unimportant and wispy marks, while the portrait and the reverse are very clean. The bisecting obverse die crack and the widely spaced STATES confirm the die marriage.
    From The Greg and Lesia Hosch Collection.(#7694) (Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25FU, PCGS# 7694)

    Weight: 4.18 grams
