    Description

    1887 $2 1/2 MS62 PCGS. The Philadelphia Mint produced very low numbers of gold dollars, quarter eagles (6,160 of the present denomination), and three dollar gold pieces (6,000), and the half eagle were proof-only issue of 87 and 121 pieces, respectively; meanwhile, Morgan dollars flowed from the presses in record numbers. This is a lovely survivor of this low-mintage prize, showing scattered minor ticks that determine the grade. Great luster and appealing brassy-gold color prevail throughout amid a bold strike. Population: 41 in 62, 53 finer (8/16).(Registry values: P2)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25LB, PCGS# 7839)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
