    Description

    Choice Uncirculated 1836 Classic Head $2.50

    1836 $2 1/2 MS 63 PCGS. Head of 1835. This variety, the most available of the issue, displays a small curl atop Liberty's head adjacent to star 6. The obverse shows even yellow-gold coloration, but the reverse exhibits warm overtones of crimson-orange. Although not quite complete, the strike on Liberty's hair and the shield are well above average for the issue. Neither side reveals unduly distracting contact marks. Elusive any finer, this Mint State survivor is an excellent candidate for inclusion in a Mint State type set.
    From the Joseph J. Abbell Collection of U.S. Gold Coins.

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