Scarce 1849 Quarter Eagle, MS621849 $2 1/2 MS62 PCGS. The 1849 is an unheralded rarity in Mint State, primarily due to its low mintage of 23,294 pieces. Far more 1849 gold dollars were struck, since they were needed in commerce to replace hoarded silver coinage. This clean and mildly prooflike example has minor incompleteness of strike on the eagle's leg, and the fields have the expected moderate marks. Population: 4 in 62, 7 finer (4/12).
