    1839 Quarter Eagle, AU53
    Variety 21, Scarce in All Grades

    1839 $2 1/2 AU53 PCGS. Breen-6148, Variety 21, R.3. It is unlikely that more than a couple hundred 1839 quarter eagles exist today from the issue's original production of 21,021 coins, making the date scarce in all grades. Medium yellow-gold surfaces display a trace of field reflectivity and light friction over otherwise well-defined devices. Marks in the upper fields on each side identify this particular example. Population: 10 in 53, 37 finer (7/19).(Registry values: P3)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# E2MR, PCGS# 7698)

    Weight: 4.18 grams
