Description

Spectacular 1897 Quarter Eagle, MS68
Tied for Finest Certified

1897 $2 1/2 MS68 NGC. Although not as rare as some of its immediate predecessors, the 1897 had a mintage of a scant 29,700 pieces--significantly lower than any quarter eagle of the following decade. Gem Mint State examples are scarce, and anything better is exceedingly rare. This MS68 specimen is tied for the finest certified. PCGS reports none in that grade (6/09).
Scintillating satiny luster enhances the medium-yellow patina of this exquisitely struck piece. The surfaces look pristine to the unaided eye, and even with a strong loupe this fabulous specimen appears nearly perfect. This resplendent representative would suit even the pickiest collector.
From The Victoria Collection.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25LM, PCGS# 7849)
