    Sharply Defined Gem Sesquicentennial Quarter Eagle

    1926 $2 1/2 Sesquicentennial MS65 NGC. Frosty and attractive. Pale olive-gold toning, with some splashes of golden brown. Although the legislation for the issue provided for a robust maximum mintage of 6,000,000 pieces, the level of demand must have been disappointing to the Sesquicentennial planners because in the end fewer than 48,000 were actually issued; indeed, many tens of thousands were melted as unsold. Of those that survived, a large portion ended up being mishandled in some way, and accordingly, just a small percentage of the Sesquicentennial quarter eagle population can be characterized as MS65.
