Description

1875 Quarter Eagle, MS61+
Famous Rarity, 400 Pieces Struck

1875 $2 1/2 MS61+ NGC. The year 1875 is a landmark date for gold collectors, as all the Philadelphia Mint gold denominations except the double eagle were produced in extremely small numbers. The 1875 quarter eagle claims an epically low mintage of just 400 examples, and probably no more than 50 business-strike specimens are extant in all grades today. Accordingly, the 1875 is one of the most sought-after issues of the series.

The present coin is one of the finest survivors, with sharply detailed design elements and prooflike yellow-gold fields, with a few hazy color spots on the obverse. A scattering of minor contact marks on both sides is consistent with the grade. Census: 2 in 61 (1 in 61+), 0 finer (1/13).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25KS, PCGS# 7822)
