    Enticing Sesquicentennial Quarter Eagle, MS66

    1926 $2 1/2 Sesquicentennial MS66 PCGS. With a net mintage of just over 46,000 pieces, the Sesquicentennial is one of the most available classic gold commemoratives, provided grade is not a concern. Like its half dollar counterpart, however, the quarter eagle is prized for its perceived elusiveness in Gem, and finding an example above that level presents an even greater challenge.
    This Premium Gem offers a distinct increase in quality from the MS65 pieces that are much more prevalent in the numismatic marketplace. The devices are boldly detailed, a surprising attribute for this shallow-relief issue, and the butter-yellow surfaces show vibrant luster with a hint of frostiness on the reverse. Anything finer is exceedingly elusive; NGC's Census Report shows just three Superb Gems, while the PCGS Population Report notes no such pieces (10/07).
