Description:

Spectacular MS66 1891 Quarter Eagle
1891 $2 1/2 MS66 NGC. Garrett and Guth consider the 1891 quarter eagle underrated in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins, writing:

"In grades up to gem Uncirculated, the date catalogs for little more than common. This is difficult to understand, as the 1891 quarter eagle is many times rarer than any of the later-date issues."


In higher grades, however, this low-mintage issue receives its due. This MS66 survivor, the single finest coin known to NGC (5/10), is strongly struck with rich, swirling luster that enlivens yellow-gold to peach surfaces. Both sides are carefully preserved beneath a light layer of patina.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25LF, PCGS# 7843)
