    1850-C Quarter Eagle, Well-Struck MS60
    Rare in Mint State Grades

    1850-C $2 1/2 MS60 NGC. Variety 2. Ex: Eliasberg Collection. The scarcer of the two known varieties, identified by the mintmark over the 2 instead of the 1 in the fraction. The yellow-gold surfaces display wisps of apricot, and the design features are better-struck than ordinarily seen on this date, especially on the star centers and the hair atop Liberty's head. Moreover, the surfaces on both sides reveal fewer and less severe contact marks than usually seen. Rare in Mint State grades. Census: 5 in 60, 13 finer (2/14).
    From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.(Registry values: P2)
