    1914 Quarter Eagle, MS65+
    A Stopper in This High Grade

    1914 $2 1/2 MS65+ NGC. Bela Lyon Pratt's quarter eagle series is a short set without any major varieties that can generally be put together in MS64 or lower grades with a limited budget and a bit of patience. There are even some issues that survive in quantity in Gem condition. However, there are also two stoppers -- the 1911-D and this Philadelphia issue (240,000 coins minted) -- that prove to be major challenges at this level. A needle-sharp strike and vibrant mint frost characterize each side of this MS65+ offering. The fields are exceptionally clean. Census: 50 in 65 (2 in 65+), 3 finer (11/19).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7KRA, PCGS# 7946)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
