    Sensational 1876 Quarter Eagle, MS64

    1876 $2 1/2 MS64 NGC. Just 4,176 business strikes were minted, and that production ranks as the fifth lowest mintage of any quarter eagle struck in the 1870s. Although often overshadowed by the 1875 rarity, the 1876 is an extremely important date and, when found at all, is found in lower grades. This is only the 14th Mint State example that we have offered in our auctions since January 1993 when we began our archives. Prior to the present coin, the best that crossed our desks graded just MS62. Altogether, 93 examples of this issue in our sales have an average grade of 51.
    It is hard to emphasize clearly enough the importance of this issue. This near-Gem is fully brilliant with intense orange-gold luster and satiny surfaces. Only a few trivial marks on the obverse prevent an even higher grade. Census: 3 in 64, 1 finer (9/10).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25KU, PCGS# 7824)
