    1885 Quarter Eagle, Semiprooflike MS62
    Mintage 800 Business Strikes

    1885 $2 1/2 MS62 NGC. With a tiny mintage of 800 circulation strikes, the 1885 quarter eagle is sought after in all grades. The date nevertheless seems to have been saved in some quantity, as it makes occasional auction appearances, usually in high AU grades. This piece features semiprooflike surfaces, as might be expected from a 19th century low-mintage coin. The strike is full, and abrasions are grade-consistent.
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2006), lot 3218; ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2010), lot 5823.(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 25L9, PCGS# 7837)

    Weight: 4.18 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
