1798 Quarter Eagle

Rare 1798 $2.50 Quarter Eagle Gold, Wide Date, NGC AU55 - $39,500.00

1798 $2.50 NGC AU55, Wide Date, BD-2, R5. In its population report, NGC shows 3 1798 quarter eagles certified at the Choice AU55 grade level. They do not distinguish quarter eagles by die variety. All Early American gold coins are scarce to extremely rare. All early gold quarter eagles like this one are extremely rare and therefore a great opportunity when they appear.

Please contact me by email or telephone 1-800-624-1870 to reserve this great coin.

The sun is shining on this eye-appealing early date 1798 Choice AU quarter eagle. Like the sun, the obverse is bright yellow-gold. The reverse is a mixture of yellow gold with a light greenish-gold patina. Clearly both sides are completely original. The few abrasion marks are in keeping with the grade, and none requires individual description. There is sufficient separation in the lines of Liberty’s hair, cap, and drapery to warrant the grade. The devices are strongly impressed, especially the horizontal stripes of the shield, the eagle’s wings, and the dentils on both sides of the coin. If you want to be dazzled by a quarter eagle, this is the piece for you.

The BD-2 variety has the date widely spaced with the 8 touching the drapery. Star 7 is far from the Y in LIBERTY. The reverse has 5 berries on the olive branch. The other variety for this date, BD-1, has a close date and 4 berries on the olive branch.

Very Truly Yours,
