    Description

    Brilliant Uncirculated 1836 Classic Quarter Eagle With the Head of 1835

    1836 $2 1/2 Script 8 MS62 NGC. Head of 1835. McCloskey-D, R.2. This coin is earmarked for inclusion in a BU quality type set. Its surfaces are pleasingly colored in light orange-copper hues. The overall impression is sharp, but a few of the central highpoints are a little blunt, and we also note than the design elements at the back of Liberty's neck are attenuated from overzealous die polishing. The latter has also resulted in hints of brightness in the fields. Moderately abraded with an as struck die crack from the obverse rim through star 6.

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

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 89.92% Gold, 10.08% Copper
