    Near-Mint State Clark, Gruber 1860 Quarter Eagle

    1860 $2 1/2 Clark, Gruber & Co. Quarter Eagle AU58 NGC. K-1, R.4. The ten and twenty dollar Clark, Gruber issues depicted a volcano-shaped incarnation of Pike's Peak. But the quarter eagle and half eagle imitated their respective Federal denominations. The central details exhibit characteristic striking weakness, although most of the stars show their radial lines. The reverse periphery is well struck, with weakness on the upper neck, the shield, and the eagle's legs. On a pleasing, lustrous honey-gold planchet. Very little rub is noted on the coin, and the surfaces are largely free of mentionable abrasions. Listed on page 362 of the 2006 Guide Book. Census: 7 in 58, 11 finer (12/05).
    From The Great Western Collection of Territorial Gold, Part Two. (NGC ID# ANJX, PCGS# 10135)
