Description

1881 Quarter Eagle, AU50
Only 640 Examples Struck

1881 $2 1/2 AU50 PCGS. Deep russet hues add character to the bright surfaces of this boldly struck and well-detailed example. One of the premier rarities in the series with an extremely low business strike mintage of just 640 pieces, along with 51 proofs. The few known survivors are invariably prooflike and often well circulated. Hints of the once-prooflike surfaces are seen in the protected areas as is a bit of verdigris at the lower portion of the reverse. A fully pleasing example of this coveted issue. Population: 6 in 50, 42 finer (7/12).
Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008), lot 3906; Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2008), lot 2381.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25L5, PCGS# 7833)
