    Description

    1885 Liberty Quarter Eagle, MS61
    Only 800 Business Strikes Minted

    1885 $2 1/2 MS61 NGC. The Philadelphia Mint coined just 800 business strike quarter eagles in 1885, one of the lowest mintages in the series. However, a surprising number of those pieces survive, according to current population data. In all grades, NGC and PCGS have certified 108 examples. This sharply detailed Mint State piece has prooflike surfaces, as nearly always, with sharply detailed devices. Scattered surface marks on each side prevent a higher grade. Census: 5 in 61, 8 finer (7/11).
    From The Clay Grant Collection.(Registry values: P2)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25L9, PCGS# 7837)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
