1860-C $2.50 Liberty. NGC graded MS-62. Well struck and untoned. A couple of minor planchet flaws as made, one behind the head of Liberty and another left of the eagle. These are mentioned only for accuracy and do not deter from the attractiveness of this coin.

From the Ashland City description: "Final year of issue for C-mint Quarter Eagles and, being produced at a Southern Mint, immensely popular as such. Just 7,469 pieces were minted, yet the '60-C ranks in the bottom half of the twenty Charlotte issues of this denomination for both overall rarity and high grade rarity. Still, locating a high grade example with decent eye appeal can be quite a challenge. This remarkably preserved example has bright, yellow-gold surfaces that are modestly reflective, with a few scattered field marks along with the planchet flaking and roughness common to virtually all known examples. High on the list of Condition Census survivors and an important Charlotte Quarter Eagle for the serious collector." Pop 3; 2 finer in 63 In a new NGC 4 pronged holder (PCGS # 7792) .
Estimated Value $14,000 - 15,000.
Previously from Heritage 1/2003:4714; Ex Ashland City, $16,100.

Realized $19,200
