    Description

    1860 Clark, Gruber Quarter Eagle, MS63+
    K-1, Superior Luster and Color

    1860 $2 1/2 Clark, Gruber & Co. Quarter Eagle MS63+ PCGS. CAC. K-1, R.4. Those who appreciate the D mintmark on modern coinage today -- or on any coinage dated 1906 or later, for that matter -- should not fail to also appreciate the Denver Mint's forebears, the banking establishment known as Clark, Gruber & Co. that became Colorado's foremost private or Territorial coiner. The U.S. government took possession of the old Clark, Gruber mint in April 1863, but it would remain an assay office only until February 1906, when it officially became a Colorado branch mint.

    Unlike the other 1860-dated denominations, the Clark, Gruber quarter eagle was imitative of the federal design. This example boasts superior luster and color, far finer than most survivors of an issue that is already very scarce. Listed on page 398 of the 2015 Guide Book. Population: 10 in 63 (3 in 63+), 2 finer (3/15). (NGC ID# ANJX, PCGS# 10135)
