Description

Rare 1881 Proof Quarter Eagle

1881 $2 1/2 PR61 NGC. A rare, low total mintage date of which only 51 proofs were originally coined along with a mere 640 business strikes. It is estimated only about 50 pieces may survive today in all grades, both proofs and business strikes. Quite a few of the survivors of this date are impaired or low grade, and as a result the 1881 has received a bit more attention from specialists over the years than other dates with comparable mintages. The fields are deeply mirrored but there are some handling marks and hairlines on each side that account for the grade. However, the effect of these detractions is minimized against the deeply reflective fields. (#7907) (NGC ID# 2884, PCGS# 7907)
