Description:
Remarkable MS66 1887 Two and a Half
Single Finest Certified
1887 $2 1/2 MS66 NGC. The present lot is the single finest certified business strike 1887 quarter eagle, the only piece to attain the MS66 level at either major grading service. The 1887 has a low mintage of 6,160 pieces, excluding the 122 proofs coined. This prooflike Premium Gem is well struck aside from star 1 and the upper left reverse dentils. The flashy fields display only microscopic contact. Presumably sold in the past as a proof, but not from proof 1887 dies, which have the date set higher in the field. A prize for the collector who will not settle for less than the finest obtainable quality.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25LB, PCGS# 7839)
