    Description

    1873 $2 1/2 Closed 3 MS63 NGC. One of 55,200 Closed 3 business strikes that were produced, most survivors being in VF or XF grades. Mint State coins are elusive. Indeed, NGC and PCGS combined have graded just 75 pieces in MS63, the grade level of the piece we offer here, and 69 specimens finer (5/05). Both sides are awash in brassy-gold luster, and the design features are well struck, though the eagle's legs are a tad soft. A few grade-limiting marks are seen over each side. What appears to be a light grease streak occurs between the TY of LIBERTY. Population: 30 in 63, 30 finer (5/05).(#7818) (Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25KM, PCGS# 7818)
