    1854 Quarter Eagle, MS66
    The Finest at PCGS

    1854 $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. The 1854 is scarcer in Mint State than the previous two Philadelphia issues, and Gem examples are rarely seen. This Premium Gem has no peers at PCGS, where it is the sole-finest 1854 quarter eagle. NGC reports one other MS66 coin plus one finer. Sharp devices and original wheat-gold luster showcase a luminous cartwheel effect throughout vibrant, frosted surfaces. Light die clashing appears above the eagle's wings.

    This is a highly appealing coin that is virtually free of marks or distractions of any kind. A faint, pinpoint thin line arcs from the tip of the bust truncation through Liberty's chin, visible only with close attention under a strong loupe. The strike is needle-sharp. PCGS Population: 1 in 66, 0 finer (10/19).(Registry values: P2)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25HX, PCGS# 7769)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
