Item Description:
From a tiny mintage of 3,035 the 1802 quarter eagle is a wonderful represent of this rare Capped bust type design. Frosty, lustrous surfaces with a lack of significantly detracting adjustment marks, this fresh example is certainly high end for the grade. CAC approved for quality. A wonderful addition to any type set. After a brief hiatus (since 1798) from the minting of gold quarter eagles, the US Mint produced approximately 3,035 pieces in 1802.
