Description

    Borderline Uncirculated Clark, Gruber
    1861 Two and a Half, K-5

    1861 $2 1/2 Clark, Gruber & Co. Quarter Eagle AU58 NGC. K-5, R.4. The respected private minter of Clark, Gruber, & Company struck the four major denominations of gold coins in both 1860 and 1861, imitating corresponding Federal types except for the volcanic Pikes Peak motif on the 1860 ten and twenty dollar pieces. Like all Clark, Gruber gold coins, excluding the rare off-metal die trials, the 1861 quarter eagle is scarce but collectible. As always, the centers are somewhat softly impressed but the remainder of the design is sharp. The tan-gold surfaces retain ample luster and are unmarked, aside from moderate roughness on the lower right reverse rim. Listed on page 391 of the 2013 Guide Book.
    Ex: Dallas Signature (Heritage, 11/2005), lot 2505, which realized $6,612.50.
