Liberty Head Quarter Eagle


1862 Liberty Head Quarter Eagle. AU-58 (NGC).
This handsome and fully original example exhibits rich honey-rose patina. It is sharply defined in virtually all areas with ample luster to tempt quality-conscious gold enthusiasts. The effects of the withdrawal of gold from circulation in the East and Midwest at the end of December 1861 were immediate, and quarter eagle production at the Philadelphia Mint fell from 1,283,788 circulation strikes in 1861 to just 98,508 circulation strikes in 1862. The latter issue is scarce in today's market, and the present offering is about as nice as one could realistically hope for at the Choice AU level.
PCGS# 7796. NGC ID: 25JZ.
