$2.50 Capped Head. 1830. PCGS graded MS-63. An extremely rare issue in any grade, and especially so in choice grades! Virtually the entire mintage of these early quarter eagles were melted as their melt value increased above their stated value. Naturally, hoarders gathered up all they could find and melted them for a tidy profit, leaving very few for todays numismatists to collect. Here is a particularly nice coin, with well struck devices and plenty of luster. PCGS has graded just 7 as MS-63, with 3 above as MS-64 and 5 at the top as MS-65 (PCGS # 7670) .
Estimated Value $12,000 - 14,000.

Realized $16,675
