1852-O $2.50 NGC AU58 CAC

This completely original 1852-O quarter eagle is well-struck and satiny with attractive medium to deep orange-gold hues atop a green-gold undertone. There is just a slight amount of friction on the high spots of the obverse and a good deal of dirt can be seen in the crevasses of the reverse. Price levels on this date have dropped in recent years due to the fact that a number of auction records for AU58 pieces are low; these tend to be for unoriginal and unappealing examples. A "Gem Slider" example like this is actually quite scarce and a very good value at less than $2,000.
