    Beautifully Patinated 1928 Quarter Eagle, MS66

    1928 $2 1/2 MS66 PCGS. The 1928 comes with a mintage exceeding 400,000 pieces and is readily located through the MS64 grade level. This issue becomes scarce in Gem condition and extremely rare any finer. PCGS and NGC have seen fewer than 25 Premium Gems (a number of which are probably resubmissions or crossovers) and no specimens that grade higher.
    A melange of beautiful yellow-gold, rose, light green and apricot runs over the strongly lustrous surfaces of the Premium Gem in the current lot, and a powerful strike manifests itself in sharp detail on the design features. Well cared for surfaces enhance the coin's eye appeal. Population: 10 in 66, 0 finer (2/10).
    From The Atherton Family Collection, Part Two.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 289E, PCGS# 7952)

    Weight: 4.18 grams
