    Select 1861 Clark, Gruber Quarter Eagle, K-5
    Only One Coin Certified Finer

    1861 $2 1/2 Clark, Gruber & Co. Quarter Eagle MS63 NGC. K-5, R.4. Clark, Gruber & Co. was a prominent Colorado banking institution as well as a respected private mint. The firm commenced operations in March 1859, and continued as a banking firm in one incarnation or another until 1865, although they issued no coins after 1861.
    The present coin is an attractive Select specimen of this scarce Territorial emission. The strike on this issue is uneven, with some devices crisply defined and others somewhat weak. All examples seen have some softness on the central devices, and this coin is no exception. The characteristic weakness shows on Liberty's cheek and ear area, and on the corresponding area of the shield on the reverse. The surfaces are a pleasing greenish-gold color, and show a minimum number of handling marks for the grade. Listed on page 382 of the 2011 Guide Book. Census: 3 in 63, 1 finer (6/10). (NGC ID# ANJY, PCGS# 10139)
