QUARTER EAGLES

The Quarter Eagle was minted between 1796 and 1929. Early quarter eagle coins from 1796 to 1834 are rare. They include the 1796 Capped Bust to Right, no stars; the Capped Bust to Right with stars of 1796-1807; the Capped Bust to Left, large size of 1808; and the Capped Head to Left of 1821 to 1834.  By 1834, the price of intrinsic gold had exceeded the face value of the coins and most were melted for a profit. In order to ameliorate this situation, the Mint issued the Classic Head Quarter Eagle in 1834. It had a reduced weight and was issued until 1839. In 1840 the Coronet or Braided Hair Quarter Eagle was produced. This design continued without interruption until 1907. This span was the longest for any American series without a major design change. In 1908 the innovative Indian Head Quarter Eagle was minted. It used an incuse design and portrayed a realistic likeness of a Native American brave. It was produced until 1929. All 1796 to 1834 Quarter Eagles are rare today in any grade, especially in an uncirculated grade.

Classic Head Quarter Eagles are scarce and the branch mints are particularly elusive. Pre 1875 Coronet Quarter Eagles are, for the most part, available in circulated grades. They are scarce and some are rare in uncirculated condition. Quarter Eagles from the mid-1870’s on are available; however, some are rare based on their original mintage. Except for the 1911-D, the Indian Head Quarter Eagles are common dates; however, in uncirculated condition all of the dates from 1908 to 1915 are rare and extremely so in MS65 condition. A six coin type set of quarter eagle coins would be an interesting and challenging way to start a collection of this unique and obsolete denomination.
