LOVELY CHOICE UNCIRCULATED 1838 QUARTER EAGLE

The 1838 quarter eagle is most often seen in circulated grades. When available in Uncirculated, the pickings usually involve marginal MS60 to MS61 pieces. Choice pieces are legitimately rare and very undervalued.

This fresh-to-the-market example has a “glow” to it which is seen only on special, choice 1838 quarter eagles. It is fully frosty with splendid rich yellow-gold color and the strike is far above-average for the issue with good detail seen at the centers. There are a few minor scuffs below stars four through six but the overall quality is exceptional for the grade.

No MS63 1838 quarter eagles have sold at auction since 2002 while no MS64′s have crossed the block since 2006.

If you collect Classic Head quarter eagles by date, this is just about the best available quality you will find for less than $15,000.

CAC has approved three in this grade with none finer.
