1826 QUARTER EAGLE - 1826/5 QUARTER EAGLE CAPPED HEAD TO LEFT
1826/5 Quarter Eagle
1826/1 Quarter Eagle - The 1826 quarter eagle is the rarest date in the series with an original mintage of only 760 coins. It is estimated that 30 to 35 survive today in all grades. Evidently an 1825 die was changed to be used in 1826. According to Breen, a microscopic corner of a 5 appears at the upper left of the 6 in the date; however, its overdate status is in dispute. The “Red Book” lists the coin as a 1826/5. Other researchers concur with the “Red Book’s” listing. The 1826 quarter eagle is one of the better struck dates of the series.

Possibly two or three proof coins of this date exist. One is in the Smithsonian Institution’s collection. No others have been reported since 1959, and researchers have questioned the early reports of proofs as most likely being mint state strikes.
