    Description

    PCGS 1836 MS 62. Breen-6144. Head of 1837. Coins with the Head of 1837 are especially difficult to locate in mint condition. This is a quality example whose single most detracting feature is its softness of strike, a usual condition for Classic quarter eagles, with weakly defined hair curls on Liberty and softness on the left leg of the eagle. The surfaces are fully lustrous, though, with only slight abrasions seen on either side.

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

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 89.92% Gold, 10.08% Copper
