Brilliant Near Mint 1861-S Quarter Eagle Rarity

1861-S $2 1/2 AU58 PCGS. Although official records show a mintage of 21,000, this issue is surprisingly rare. Walter Breen described the issue as extremely rare in XF grades and unknown in Mint State grades. While a few MS60 or finer coins have been certified (only two at PCGS), there are probably only one or two different coins that qualify. Even this AU58 grade example is a prime rarity. Highly lustrous greenish yellow-gold with exceptional eye appeal. This example has a typical strike with the usual weakness, especially at the eagle's right leg. Population: 8 in 58, 2 finer (3/06).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25JY, PCGS# 7795)
