    1862 Quarter Eagle, MS63
    Very Rare So Well-Preserved

    1862 $2 1/2 MS63 PCGS. The economic impact of the Civil War is clear by examining the decline in quarter eagle mintages beginning in 1862. Between 1861 and 1862, the production of quarter eagles at the Mint dropped by over 92%. One year later, no two and a half dollar gold coins were produced at all. The 1862 (98,508 coins struck) is very scarce in all grades and rare in Uncirculated condition. Select survivors are very rare. This piece has rich orange and reddish-gold color with luminous luster and a full strike. Light field marks are undistracting. Population: 8 in 63, 3 finer (7/15).(Registry values: P2)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25JZ, PCGS# 7796)
