    1850-C Quarter Eagle, MS61
    Semiprooflike Fields

    1850-C $2 1/2 MS61 NGC. Variety 2. The scarcer of the two known varieties. The 1850-C is among the more available C-mint quarter eagles from the 1850s, but is still itself elusive, as only 175 to 225 examples are believed to survive in all grades. Most extant pieces exhibit light to moderate wear, and pieces grading AU or finer are seldom seen. Winter estimates as few as four to six truly Uncirculated examples exist today which, if at all accurate, reveals the certified population data to be highly inflated. This representative exhibits bright green-gold color overall, with a degree of semiprooflike mirroring in the fields. Scattered abrasions define the grade, and the central devices show a touch of the usual softness. Census: 11 in 61, 3 finer (6/14).(Registry values: P2)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25HH, PCGS# 7756)
