Lot Details & Additional Photographs
NGC VF Details, Improperly Cleaned. An early American rarity with a tiny original mintage of 4,520 pieces, only a small fraction of which survive. The coin has retoned from a light cleaning long ago and does not have the reflective surfaces associated with harshly cleaned specimens. In fact, this early quarter eagle still has traces of mint luster around the devices. Breen 6134; BD-1 (110-125 known).
