||1837 $2 1/2 AU58+ NGC. CAC. Breen-6145, Variety 16, R.2. The Mint took a breather after the half-million plus production of quarter eagles in 1836, and struck a limited mintage of just 45,080 pieces in 1837. Mint State examples are few, increasing demand for borderline Mint State coins such as this original, glowing green-gold coin. A bit of rub on the high points indicates a brief stay in circulation. The strike is bold and prooflike flash remains at the margins. NGC granted the Plus for high quality and CAC confirms the eye appeal. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
