Description

Rare 1885 Quarter Eagle, AU58 NGC

1885 $2 1/2 AU58 NGC. This semi-prooflike quarter eagle exhibits pleasing golden-rose color with a needle sharp strike. Scattered abrasions from circulation are seen in the fields, none of which are out of context with the assigned grade. A swath of light patina over the right obverse and a faint planchet streak in the reverse field below the eagle's left (facing) wing are mentioned for accuracy. The 1885 was produced to the extent of just 800 coins, and only 34-38 pieces are believed extant with most survivors grading XF-AU.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25L9, PCGS# 7837)
