Liberty Head Quarter Eagle


1860 Liberty Head Quarter Eagle. Type II Reverse. MS-61 (NGC).
Softly frosted surfaces are adorned with a blend of honey-gold and deep rose patina. This is a sharply struck example from a mintage of 22,563 circulation strikes. While among the more realistic type candidates from the early portion of the Liberty Head quarter eagle series, Mint State 1860 Type I quarter eagles are scarce. With so few examples grading finer than MS-61, the coin offered here also holds tremendous appeal for advanced collectors of Liberty Head gold.
PCGS# 97791. NGC ID: 25JS.
NGC Census: 17; 5 finer (MS-64+ finest).
Ex 2006 GSA Gold Sale.
