In 1831, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad held an open competition between inventors to design the best locomotive, offering $4,000 to the winner. Phineas Davis would go on to win the Philadelphia-held competition with the first locomotive to use coal as fuel. Could this 1831 quarter eagle have been part of Davis’ winnings?
