Description

Sharp and Rare 1880 Quarter Eagle, MS63

1880 $2 1/2 MS63 PCGS. CAC. The 1880 quarter eagle is an extremely rare issue, due largely to its mintage of only 2,996 coins at a time when the nation's mints were spewing out millions of unwanted Morgan silver dollars. Gold dollars of the year also saw tiny mintages compared to the larger-denomination gold coins. Most examples including the present piece are understandably found with prooflike surfaces, here showing a few ticks consistent with a Select Mint State grade. A tiny copper alloy spot appears near star 12, but the strike is bold. Population: 8 in 63, 12 finer (6/09).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25L4, PCGS# 7832)
