1837 $2.50 Classic Head. NGC graded MS-60. Untoned. Only 45,080 pieces minted. Designed by William Kneass (who, by the time this 1837 quarter eagle was made had been incapacitated by a stroke), his delightful design with a curly topped Liberty was struck in the years 1834 to 1839. This is an especially charming example. It exudes mint frostiness everywhere. It has excellent detail at the hair and curls, with similar clear definition on the eagle's wings and body. About the only area of softness is found on the shield lines, elsewhere, including the legends, detail is crisp. Pop 8; 37 finer, 14 in 61, 19 in 62, 4 in 63 (PCGS # 7695) .
Estimated Value $4,000 - 4,500.

 
Realized $4,370
