1860 Clark Gruber & Co. $2.5
K-1, R.4. Of all the Clark, Gruber gold coinage, the $2.50 and $5 pieces of 1860 are the most plentiful and are frequently chosen for type collecting. This is an affordable example that was, unfortunately highly polished at one time, possibly the result of jewelry use. The central obverse and reverse are weakly defined as usual. Still, excellent detailing remains and the color is bright green-gold.

Clark, Gruber & Co., Leavenworth, Kansas bankers, formed a branch of their establishment in Denver after gold was discovered in the region in the 1850s. Clark, Gruber became the largest mint in the Territory. Its operation would subsequently form the basis for the Denver Mint government mint. (PCGS 10135) Extremely Fine, polished
