    Rare 1825 Quarter Eagle in MS 60

    1825 MS 60 Slightly Porous. With a mintage of 4,434 pieces, this is actually one of the more available dates of this short-lived type. Perhaps 100 coins are known in various grades, probably fewer. The obverse has a pebbly appearance from light porosity, but some of the original prooflike glow remains near the devices. Boldly struck, with each of Liberty's curls full and all of the feathers on the eagle clear. Sought-after by type collectors, and one of the most difficult early gold coins to locate in choice, problem-free condition. (NGC ID# 25FG, PCGS# 7664)

    Weight: 4.37 grams

    Metal: 91.67% Gold, 8.33% Copper
