$2.5 Quarter Eagle, Classic Head

The 11-piece Classic Head Quarter Eagle set is the first US gold coin series collectible by the non-millionaire collector. The Classic Head came into use when the Act of June 28, 1834 reduced the weight of the gold coinage. Minted from 1834 through 1839, the coins circulated until the Civil War. The 1838 and 1839 branch mint coins are avidly collected because of the low mintages and the placement of the mintmark on the obverse. This placement is collected as a variety in advanced type sets in addition to the date and mintmark sets.

Rating: The weighted average of all coin grades (i.e. aggregated sum of each coin grade + CAC premium multiplied by its rarity factor divided by the sum of all rarity factors). Missing coins are included and assigned a grade of 0. This metric is the basis for order rank.

Complete: The number of coin entries divided by the total number of coins in the Set.

Weighted Grade: The weighted average of all coin grades (see calculation above), but excluding any missing coins.

%: The ratio of coins certified by CAC (either green or gold sticker). Calculated as the number of CAC coins divided by the total number of entered coins.

Rarity Factor: The rarity assessment for each date/variety uses the Sheldon scale of R1 through R8 with a R1 weight being the most common while an R8 weight being the most difficult to locate. Rarity estimates are by Osprey.
