1834 QUARTER EAGLE - 1834 CLASSIC QUARTER EAGLE
1834 Classic Quarter Eagle

1834 Classic Quarter Eagle - In 1834 the weight of the quarter eagle was reduced to 4.18 grams, and the fineness changed to .8992 gold. These changes, made after July 31st, caused the quarter eagle to circulate at face value, which it had not done since 1821. The new design made it easy for the public to differentiate the new coins from the previous issue.

The new coins had a mintage of 112,234, significantly higher than previous issues. Consequently a range of grades is available today. PCGS has certified 631 pieces, and NGC has 930 listed. Both services have an MS66, and NGC has certified an MS66 PL. Only 7 or 8 proof coins are known. PCGS has certified 4 and NGC has 8. Obviously these numbers have resulted from resubmissions and crossovers.

Specifications:
Weight: 4.18 grams
Composition: .8992 gold, .1008 silver and copper
Diameter: 18.2 millimeters
Edge: reeded
